KIEV (Reuters) - Two Ukrainian servicemen were killed and 26 wounded in separatist eastern territories over the past 24 hours, Ukrainian military spokesman Andriy Lysenko said on Friday.

Violence has fallen significantly since a peace accord was signed in February, but both government troops and pro-Russian rebels accuse the other side of violations and casualties are reported almost daily.
