NOVOAZOVSK, Ukraine — Rebel soldiers, a tank and separatist flags are some of the first warnings that all is not calm along the quiet rural road leading up to this village of in southeast Ukraine.
The entrance to the village is manned by a group of separatists. Next to them are army trucks with the flag of Novorossiya – or New Russia – the symbol of separatists’ aspirations to create an independent state from parts of east Ukraine.
This area along the northern coast of the Sea of Azov is the heart of the latest front in the months-long struggle over the fate of eastern Ukraine
