Reports say the occupants were disarmed after the vehicles were blockaded by locals in the city of Kramatorsk. The incident comes a day after the military began an operation to remove pro-Russian protesters from public buildings across eastern Ukraine.
The continuing nature of food fraud - where products are deliberately mislabelled - shows there is a need for a "renewed effort" in order to force businesses to act honestly about the produce they sell, according to the food regulator.
Andrew Rhodes, chief operating officer at the Food Standards Agency, said:

Prosecutions have taken place against business owners for mislabelling lamb dishes, but the recurring nature of the problem shows there needs to be a renewed effort to tackle this problem. Clearly the message isn't getting through to some businesses.
The further priority testing we have announced today will focus the efforts of enforcement officers and raise awareness amongst food businesses of the action they face for defrauding consumers."
A 20-month-old baby girl, who was born deaf, will hear for the first time today following cochlear implant surgery. Amelie Rings' implants will be turned on today, allowing the tot from North Wales to initially hear a whisper.
As the weeks go on, the implants will be altered and the sounds will gradually get louder.
Amelie's mum Vicky told News North Wales: "It is going to be emotional. It will also be interesting to see how she reacts. She might cry, laugh or smile – I just hope she likes it.”
The food watchdog has announced a crackdown on takeaway restaurants selling lamb dishes to customers, when they are in fact using a different meat, like beef or chicken.
The Food Standards Agency (FSA) said priority testing would take place across the UK from the beginning of May.
Businesses selling fake lamb dishes could face prosecution if it is found the meat was deliberately mislabelled.
An FSA review of local authority sampling data, from July to December 2013, found that 43 out of 145 samples of lamb takeaway meals contained meat other than lamb.
None of the dishes tested were found to contain horsemeat, the FSA added.
People are still alive in a capsized South Korean ferry, the father of one of the schoolchildren trapped inside the upturned ship told Reuters.
"(The child) told me in the text message, 'I am alive, there are students alive, please save us quickly'," the father said.
A father of a child on-board the capsized South Korean ferry has told Reuters he has communicated with his child by text.
He told the news agency: "There are students alive on the boat."
A desperate search is continuing for ferry passengers in South Korea, many of whom were children on a school trip, after a ship capsized.
Safety announcements were confused with some told to jump in the water and others were told to stay where they were as the ship started tipping over. Six bodies have been found.
The ferry set sail on a 14 hour journey from Incheon to Jeju island late last night. It capsized near the island of Byeongpoong. It was carrying 429 passengers and 30 crew.
While steps have been taken to reduce infection rates of hospital bugs such as MRSA and Clostridium difficile, other infection rates are still too high, the Nice said.
A spokeswoman said doctors and nurses must "redouble" hygiene efforts to bring the rates down.

It is unacceptable that infection rates are still so high within the NHS. Infections are a costly and avoidable burden. They hinder a patient's recovery, can make underlying conditions worse, and reduce quality of life.
Although there have been major improvements within the NHS in infection control, particularly in relation to Clostridium difficile and MRSA bloodstream infections in the last few years, healthcare associated infections are still a very real threat to patients, their families and carers and staff.
One in 16 people receiving NHS care are picking up infections, health officials have warned.
The National Institute for Health Care Excellence (Nice) says he level of infections are "unacceptably high" and are a "very real threat" to patients.
Every year around 300,000 people get an infection while being cared for by the health service in England.The most common type of infections include pneumonia, lower respiratory tract infections, urinary tract infections and surgical site infections.
These infections can occur in otherwise healthy people, especially if invasive procedures or devices like catheters or vascular access devices, are used, Nice said.
