    Ukraine crisis: Protesters 'storm security HQs in east'





    Pro-Russian demonstrators seized buildings in several cities including Donetsk



    Pro-Russian activists in eastern Ukraine have seized state security buildings in the cities of Donetsk and Luhansk, Ukrainian officials say.

    Reports say that in Luhansk the protesters have raided the arsenal in the security building. Police have reacted by blocking roads into Luhansk.
    On Sunday protesters broke into the regional government buildings in the two cities and also Kharkiv.
    Ukraine's acting president has called an emergency security meeting.
    Tensions have escalated in eastern Ukraine in recent weeks. Russia is consolidating its grip on Crimea, annexed by Moscow last month, and thousands of Russian troops remain massed near the Ukrainian border.
    Ukrainian authorities say protesters have now left the government building in Kharkiv.
    But in Luhansk on Monday police said "unknown people who are in the building have broken into the building's arsenal and have seized weapons".
    Ukraine's interim President Olexander Turchynov cancelled a visit to Lithuania to deal personally with the unfolding events.

    Haven't watched the news this weekend so hadn't seen this.

    If this gets serious and people start getting killed I can see the Russian army moving in to protect their people/supporters in east Ukraine. If Russia move to the Ukraine mainland it will be seen as an act of war and a serious threat to the whole of Ukraine. The Ukraine army are unlikely to sit on the sidelines if that happens and it could turn into a full scale war. Are NATO then going to step up to their promise to protect the Ukraine.

    I always thought world war 3 would start in the middle east with Israel involved somewhere but at the moment I'm thinking otherwise. (">

    America has been trying to get this to happen since the 90's.
