Ukraine: Separatists In Donetsk Disarm Border Guards

Separatists in Donetsk disarmed border guards at the Uspenka checkpoint after the guards detained the co-chairman of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People's Republic, Interfax-Ukraine reported May 5, citing a report from the regional state administration. The border service detained Denys Pushylin, and armed separatists arrived to assist their leader, taking the border guards' firearms. The separatists also have set up new checkpoints on the outskirts of the city. Donetsk has been a hotbed of separatist activity, and Kiev is not likely to regain control over Donetsk oblast without risking more civilian casualties.
