ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Ukrainian border guards rebuffed attacks by armed pro-Russian separatists on Sunday (June 1) at a border post on the outskirts of the eastern Ukrainian city of Luhansk. Video of the attack shows at least one rocket exploding at the base amidst the firefight. Violence in the east intensified in the run-up to the May 25 election in Ukraine in which a first round win by Poroshenko, a confectionery magnate, gave the signal for a Ukrainian military offensive against the separatists. Leadership in Kiev says Russian border authorities could do far more to stop these armed groups crossing into eastern Ukraine. Moscow denies involvement in the conflict that threatens to tear Ukraine apart and has dragged ties between Russia and the West to their lowest ebb since the Cold War.
