KIEV (Reuters) - One Ukrainian serviceman was killed and six were wounded in the separatist eastern territories in the past 24 hours, Kiev military spokesman Oleksandr Motuzyanyk said in a televised briefing on Monday.

A truce, brokered in the Belarussian capital of Minsk in mid-February, is still technically in force though casualties are reported almost daily.

Ukraine's military and pro-Russian rebels have accused each other of intensifying attacks over the past few days.
