Ukraine: government building seized in Slaviansk
Text size Aa Aa

A police building in the Ukrainian city of Slaviansk has been seized by armed men in camouflage uniforms.

It’s the latest to be taken over in the east as pro-Russian protesters stand off against Kyiv.

Slaviansk is about 150 km from the border with Russia.

Government buildings in Donetsk and Luhansk have been occupied by pro-Russian protesters who want their regions to split from Kyiv.

Interior Minister Arsen Avakov said the response will be, “tough because there is a difference between protesters and terrorists.”
