Cease-fire over, Ukraine renews attacks

KARLOVKA, Ukraine — Ukrainian forces and pro-Russia separatists fought with heavy weapons in the country’s east today, and the rebels captured the Interior Ministry headquarters in a major city after an hours-long gun battle, a day after the president said rebels weren’t serious about peace talks and ended a cease-fire.

The often-broken cease-fire had given European leaders 10 days to search in vain for a peace deal, and its end raised the prospect of an escalation in a conflict that has already killed more than 400 people. Ukrainian forces have been unable to suppress the rebels in two months of fighting — and it was not clear now what they would be doing differently to change that situation.
