Four people have been arrested after two helicopters were shot down in the south east Ukrainian city of Slaviansk, the country's defence ministry said.
In a statement on their website, the ministry said: "In the result of events within the anti-terror operation at the block-post near Slavyansk there are [arrests of] four persons who allegedly shot down helicopters from PZRK."
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.
