Ukrainian troops have withdrawn from a checkpoint they had taken over from pro-Russian forces this morning.
Pro-Russian separatists moved back in and began to reinforce the position with sandbags in the East of Ukraine near the village of Khrestyshche.
The Ukrainian troops, with armoured vehicles, pulled back after about two hours at the checkpoint, said Reuters.
European Union foreign ministers added 13 people to their visa ban and asset freeze list over Ukraine's crisis.
Well that’s the voting over, and no surprises so far. A ‘Yes’ vote claimed to be 89% in Donetsk, and suddenly Ukraine is no more.
Nearly 90 percent of voters in eastern Ukrainian region voted for self-rule, the head of the separatist election commission said.
