KIEV (Reuters) - Six Ukrainian servicemen have been killed and 14 wounded in separatist eastern territory in the past 24 hours, despite a four-month-old ceasefire deal, news agency Interfax Ukraine cited the Ukrainian military as saying on Saturday.

The casualties were a result of active fighting and shelling by pro-Russian separatists, military spokesman Andriy Lysenko was quoted as saying.
