Kiev: One Ukrainian soldier has been killed and 15 wounded in fighting with pro-Russian rebels over the past 24 hours, Ukraine's military said on Saturday, as clashes continued to break a nominal truce.

One paratrooper was shot dead by a sniper in the ruins of Donetsk's international airport, where Ukrainian forces are almost surrounded by rebels, the military said in a statement.

Another 15 servicemen were wounded as government positions around the conflict zone came under repeated bombardment, the statement said.

The deadly fighting rumbled on in the industrial east despite a two-month old ceasefire deal that has halted significant offensives, but failed to stop shelling at strategic flashpoints along the frontline.

Over 4,000 people -- mostly civilians -- have been killed in the conflict since April, the United Nations said.
