Security forces remain on high alert in Ukraine’s eastern city of Donetsk after violence erupted during a pro-Russia demonstration.
There has been growing clamour for a referendum for greater autonomy in the region – claims which are spilling into violence.
Several dozen protesters were detained including Pavel Gubarev, the self-proclaimed people’s governor.
His lawyer addressed the crowd saying that he was still in Donetsk and had not been taken out of the city as previously thought.
It comes a day after police seized back control of a regional government headquarters taken over by pro-Russian supporters.
With tensions spiralling upwards, Ukraine has recalled some of its warships amid fears the crisis may not be settled diplomatically.
It is a possibility also being entertained by the United States which is sending 12 F-16 fighter jets to Poland as part of an expanded training exercise in response to Russia’s intervention in Crimea.
