A Ukrainian general and 14 soldiers were killed today when pro-Russian rebels shot down a military helicopter near Slaviansk in eastern Ukraine.
Ukraine's interim president Oleksandr Turchynov says the chopper was brought down by a portable SAM weapon fired by insurgents.
Sloviansk, located in the Donetsk region, has been the center of major clashes in recent weeks between Ukrainian troops and the pro-Russian separatists.
Residential areas have frequently come under shelling, resulting in civilian casualties and prompting some people to flee the area.
Video shows the aftermath of fighting in one neighborhood.
Lodmila, Slaviansk Resident: "they started bombing at 4 o'clock and the rockets fell near the house where we live... one house was destroyed and all the windows in my house too…"
