Russian FM slams West over Ukraine

Ukrainian soldiers ride in an armored personal carrier (APC) in the Volnovakha village of Donetsk area, Ukraine, on Thursday. Thirteen Ukrainian government troops were killed overnight while trying to protect the eastern city of Volnovakha from pro-Russian separatists, the Ukrainian government said. The toll was believed to be the highest that Ukrainian troops have seen since the launch of military operations against the separatists in mid-April.
