Ukraine government forces capture two more towns
July 7 , 2014
Ukrainian government forces have recaptured two cities from rebel fighters. Druzhkivka and Artemivsk are now under the control of government forces, officials claimed.
Earlier, government forces had recaptured Sloviansk, a major rebel stronghold.
Ukraine’s president Petro Poroshenko had described the capture of Sloviansk as a “turning point” in the conflict. However, he warned against any premature celebrations as important areas remained under rebel control.
According to reports, pro-Russian fighters may be regrouping in Donetsk.
