Ukraine Crisis: Troops Abandon Luhansk Airport After Clashes
Ukrainian forces have withdrawn from the airport of the eastern city of Luhansk following clashes with pro-Russian rebels, military officials say.
The announcement came after the two sides were engaged in all-night fighting.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has urged negotiators meeting in the Belarus capital, Minsk, to make an “immediate ceasefire” their priority.
Some 2,600 people have died in eastern Ukraine since fighting began in April.
