Intense fighting is raging in eastern Ukraine and an insurgent leader says rebels are losing the battle. Rebel chief Igor Strelkov said in a statement on YouTube that his men are far outnumbered and outgunned by Ukrainian forces and are likely to retreat. He said the Ukrainian military advance would completely cut rebel supply lines to Slovyansk and issued a desperate plea to the Kremlin for military assistance.
