KIEV, Ukraine, July 11 (UPI) -- Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko vowed Friday that pro-Russian separatists in the restive eastern region will suffer lethal consequences for killing Ukrainian troops.

"For every taken life of our servicemen, they will pay with tens and hundreds of theirs. Not a single terrorist will escape responsibility, everyone will get what they deserve," Poroshenko said Friday.

The president met Friday with security officials to discuss the militants' use of Russian-made BM-21 Grad rocket launchers against Ukrainian forces.

More than 30 Ukrainian soldiers and border guarders were reportedly killed earlier Friday by Grad missile strikes launched by rebels against a military camp near Zelenopillya, approximately 40 miles from Lunhansk.
