Army troops have penetrated deep inside a rebel-controlled city in eastern Ukraine, in what could prove a breakthrough development in the four-month-long conflict, the Ukrainian government said Sunday.However, the military acknowledged that another one of its fighter planes had been shot down by the separatists, who have been bullish about their ability to continue the battle and have bragged about receiving support from Russia. An Associated Press reporter spotted a column of several dozen heavy vehicles, including tanks and at least one rocket launcher, rolling through rebel-held territory on Sunday.The column of armored vehicles was spotted southeast of Luhansk outside a town very close to the Russian border and was heading west, deeper into rebel-held territory. It was unclear whether the column had come from Russia. Ukraine's president on Friday said that Ukraine had destroyed a large number of military vehicles that had recently crossed from Russia.
