Ukraine's military says its forces on the eastern frontline have come under heavy rebel shelling, with one soldier killed and four wounded.


But Russian-backed rebels say troops tried to break through their lines and got caught in a minefield, with two killed and three wounded.

Ukraine's President Volodymyr Zelensky is convening a meeting of his Security Council to assess the flare-up.

The violence puts new pressure on a shaky ceasefire deal.

The clash, now said to be over, took place near Zolote, a frontline village in the Luhansk region of Donbas. The conflict began in 2014.

The rebels hold much of Donbas.
