Pro-Russian rebels in eastern Ukraine have exchanged scores of prisoners with the Ukrainian government near the rebel-held city of Donetsk.

The deal was to swap 150 Ukrainian soldiers for 225 militants - the biggest exchange so far.

Ukraine later said 146 of its soldiers had been freed for 222 militants.

Meanwhile, Ukraine froze vital bus and rail links with Crimea, its southern peninsula annexed by Russia in March.
