President Petro Poroshenko has named a new chief of military operations against separatists in eastern Ukraine, continuing a shake-up of the military and security leadership to combat the insurgency.The move, announced on the president's website, is the latest by Poroshenko to tighten his grip on security operations and restore public confidence in his ability to win the fight against the separatists.After the appointment of a new defence minister and a new head of the armed forces general staff last week, government forces notched up their biggest victory to date against the separatists by re-taking the city of Slaviansk which had been a rebel stronghold.
