Pro-Kiev militia prepares to fight separatists in Ukraine
Issued on: Modified:
In eastern Ukraine clashes continue between separatist rebels and government forces. But as heavily armed separatist militias continue to resist government troops, it appears at least one pro-Kiev militia has been formed to fight for the unity of Ukraine. This latest development suggests that arms are increasingly falling into the hands of private citizens on opposite sides of the conflict - which fuels fears that Ukraine is sliding into civil war.
