GOOGLE TRANSLATION: "In Slovyansk a "hunt" is declared on Ukrainian speakers. Slovyansk separatists announced a hunt for people who speak Ukrainian.

This was declared by the so-called leader of the separatist Slovyansk Vyacheslav Ponomarev. He asked local residents to report to the "people's militia" on any suspicious individual in the city, "especially those who speak the Ukrainian language", the correspondent of "Ukrainska Pravda" reports.

Ponomarev also promised that the local media will publish a phone number to report "suspicious individuals".

In addition, Ponomarev said that the city banned opposition political parties - "UDAR" (Klitshchko) "Svoboda" (Tyagnybok) and "Batkivschyna" (Tymoshenko) - and campaigning for them.

The leader of the separatists reported that on April 22 the city will hold the "first meeting of the city council" and on May 11th the city is to hold a referendum on federalization and uniting with Russia."

Earlier it was reported that the separatists said they hold hostage the Mayor Helena Shtepa.

Use the proper term. It's not a 'hunt', it's a pogrom.
