Deadly Clashes in East Ukraine Spark Blame Game
Authorities in Kyiv have accused Moscow of provoking a deadly gunfight between pro-Russian and pro-Ukrainian activists in the eastern city of Kharkiv
At least two men were killed and five others wounded in the overnight clashes.
Rival groups both blamed each other for the violence, with Ukrainian authorities saying they feared Russia might use the trouble as a pretext to invade.
Accusing pro-Russian provocateurs, Ukraine’s interior minister Arsen Avakov urged people via social media not to fight back.
