Ukraine's richest man pleaded with the government on Monday not to bomb Donetsk, a city of a million people where hundreds of heavily armed pro-Russian rebels have vowed to make a stand after losing control of their bastion in the town of Slaviansk. Rinat Akhmetov is calling for peace as shelling rages on across the country. Kiev government has said it will act quickly to seize back more territory from rebels after re-taking Slaviansk in what President Petro Poroshenko called a turning point in the three-month conflict against pro-Russian fighters in the east. Rebels retreating from Slaviansk, some driving armored vehicles flying Russian flags, poured into Donetsk, 65 miles to the north over the weekend.
