Nine Ukrainian servicemen were killed on Tuesday when pro-Russian insurgents shot down an army helicopter in the separatist east just a day after a top militia leader ordered a temporary ceasefire.

"There were nine people on board the (Mi-8) helicopter. According to preliminary information... everyone on board died," Ukrainian defence spokesman Vladyslav Seleznyov wrote in a Facebook post.
