Hostilities between Ukrainian government forces and pro-Russian separatists have escalated as Ukraine President Petro Poroshenko was said Friday to be about to unveil a 14-point peace plan to curb an ongoing insurgency. On Thursday, government security forces claimed to have killed about 300 separatists in fierce clashes 60 miles from the border with Russia. Details of the peace plan, which appeared in local Ukrainian media, promise for Kiev's power to be decentralized and call for rebels to immediately disarm.
