Pro-Russian separatists walk at a destroyed war memorial on Savur-Mohyla, a hill east of the city of DonetskBy Richard Balmforth and Adrian Croft KIEV/BRUSSELS (Reuters) - Ukraine said Russian tanks had flattened a small border town and pro-Russian rebels had made fresh gains in its east, as EU leaders signalled on Saturday they would threaten more sanctions against Moscow over the crisis. Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko, attending an EU summit in Brussels, said he was hoping for progress in finding a political solution, but told journalists there were now thousands of foreign troops in his country. Russia has repeatedly dismissed accusations from Kiev and Western powers that it has sent soldiers into its neighbour, or supported pro-Russian rebels fighting a five-month-old separatist war in Ukraine's east.

By Alexei Anishchuk MOSCOW (Reuters) - A Russian politician said on Saturday he had been badly beaten after publicising the mysterious funerals of two soldiers who may have died while fighting in Ukraine. Lev Shlosberg, a newspaper publisher who represents the liberal opposition Yabloko party in the regional assembly in the northwestern city of Pskov, said he was attacked on Friday evening near his home. "They attacked me from behind, I did not see any of them," Shlosberg said in a phone interview from his hospital ward. Those people were very good professionals in their nasty business." Shlosberg's paper published the investigation into the funerals of two Pskov-based paratroopers last week.
