Kiev, April 23 - Ukraine's acting president Oleksandr Turchynov has ordered relaunching military operations against pro-Russian militants in the east after two people, one a local politician, were tortured to death.

The body of politician Vladimir Rybak, he said, was found near rebel-held Sloviansk, BBC reported Wednesday. The move came as US Vice-President Joe Biden was visiting Ukraine.
