Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk has said that Russia wants to start World War Three by occupying Ukraine "militarily and politically" and creating a conflict that would spread to the rest of Europe.
Yatseniuk told the interim cabinet in remarks broadcast live:
Attempts at military conflict in Ukraine will lead to a military conflict in Europe.
The world has not yet forgotten World War Two, but Russia already wants to start World War Three.
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.
