Pro-Russian separatists have fired a big barrage of Grad rockets at Ukrainian troops in the eastern region of Luhansk, killing as many as 30, Ukrainian officials say.
Russian Grad rockets are classed as heavy artillery weapons, fired in batches from trucks.
Unconfirmed reports put the Ukrainian death toll as high as 30, with dozens more wounded, near Zelenopillya.
Last night rebels also shelled Ukrainian troops at Donetsk airport.
The rebels have regrouped in Donetsk as the Ukrainian military has retaken territory in the country's east. The rebels have not yet broken through to the airport.
A report by the human rights group Amnesty International has accused separatists of abuses in the three-month conflict.
