DONETSK, Ukraine — Separatist rebels said they retook a village near the Russian border from government forces today as both sides pressed to claim territory in eastern Ukraine.

Sergei Kavtaradze, a spokesman for separatists in Donetsk, said one rebel militiaman was killed and 15 others injured in fighting in the village of Marinivka. The insurgency’s military leader, Igor Girkin, told the Russian television station LifeNews that his men destroyed two Ukrainian armored vehicles and captured another.
