AFP , Wednesday 16 Apr 2014

Ukraine's defence ministry said on Wednesday that pro-Russian militants had seized six armoured vehicles dispatched by Kiev to the eastern town of Kramatorsk to quell a separatist insurgency.

The ministry said the column had been initially blocked in Kramatorsk by local residents and then "seized by extremists". It added that the column had since been moved by the militants to the flashpoint eastern city of Slavyansk.
