Ukraine Crisis ********************** A three-day-old ceasefire in eastern Ukraine was under pressure after three government soldiers were killed, while European nations raised new fears about Russia's "unprecedented" military build-up. On some parts of the frontline, there appeared to be a determined effort by Ukrainian soldiers to keep the shaky truce from collapsing. Government soldiers could be seen blithely ignoring rebel forces firing on their position at the hotly contested Donetsk airport. The ceasefire was introduced on Tuesday in the hope of ending an eight-month conflict that has claimed at least 4,300 lives and displaced close to a million people. The Ukraine government had initially hoped to hold talks in the Belarus capital Minsk but they have been postponed without clear explanation.
