Dozens die in Ukraine in street battles, Donetsk shelling

KIEV/DONETSK Ukraine (Reuters) - Heavy shelling hit residential neighbourhoods in Ukraine's rebel stronghold of Donetsk and government forces fought street battles in other towns on Wednesday as they sought to crush a four-month-old separatist rebellion. The forces of the Western-backed Kiev government are steadily gaining the upper hand over the separatists in Russian-speaking eastern Ukraine and are tightening the noose around the main rebel bastions of Donetsk and Luhansk. Reuters reporters in Donetsk said mortar rounds had struck Chelyuskintsev Street in the north of the city, a few km (miles) from the frontline of the conflict, shattering the windows of several five-storey apartment buildings and shearing off the branches of trees and downing power lines #facebook #Economy #Business #Japan #Argentina #Latin America #Ukraine #city
