Ukrainian President-elect Petro Poroshenko vowed to punish pro-Russian rebels who downed a Ukrainian military helicopter on Thursday, calling them "bandits." The attack killed an army general and 11 others. Ukraine's acting defense minister said Friday the government would continue its offensive against rebels in eastern Ukraine. Russia has started pulling troops from near the border and urged Kiev to "start a real national dialogue."
