Ukraine's acting Defence Minister Myhailo Koval has said that if Russia sends 'peace-keeping' forces, Kiev's military will fight them.
"The United Nations has given no such [peace-keeping] mandate to the Russians," Koval told the Interfax Ukraine agency.
"Everybody is already fed up with Russia's games with peace-keeping."
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.
