KIEV (Reuters) - Three Ukrainian servicemen have been killed and seven wounded in fighting with pro-Russian separatists in east Ukraine in the past 24 hours, a military spokesman said on Friday.

The deaths follow two consecutive days in which the military reported none of its troops had been killed, which had raised hopes a ceasefire deal could hold despite initial violations.
