Ukraine Clash Kills Three as Powers Meet for Crisis Talks

Ukrainian forces killed three pro- Russian militants after an attack on a national guard base in the country’s east as the U.S. and its European allies sat down with Ukraine and Russia to discuss the crisis.

Police also wounded 13 fighters after about 300 fired on guards and threw Molotov cocktails in the southeast Ukrainian city of Mariupol overnight, Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said on Facebook. Russian President Vladimir Putin rejected claims from Ukraine that he’d deployed troops there and said he would fight to defend compatriots in other countries.
