Ukraine has categorically rejected Russian attempts to blame Kiev for breaking the Geneva Accord, the country's foreign ministry said in a statement, adding that Russia had taken not steps to de-escalate situation.
The ministry added that Moscow supported in many ways "terrorist" groups in eastern Ukraine, putting civilians in danger.
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.
