KIEV, Feb 1 : At least 19 soldiers and civilians were killed in clashes across east Ukraine as fierce fighting raged on Sunday between government forces and pro-Russian rebels following the collapse of ceasefire talks.
Ukraine's military said that 13 soldiers had died and 20 were wounded over the past 24 hours, pushing the military death toll over the past two days to 28.
Six civilians also died in fighting across the rebels' self-declared Donetsk People's Republic and in Kiev-controlled towns in Lugansk region, government officials and separatists said. 
The latest casualty reports came as Ukraine's two warring sides looked further than ever from agreeing a peace deal after the collapse of truce talks Saturday.     ?AFP
