It has outraged Russia. This is exactly the kind of provocation that threatens to undermine the Geneva agreement.
It will only harden the rift between the East and West of Ukraine.
Since they became Independent, the Ukraine has failed to rise above their prejudices. Foolish.
Three pro-Russian militants were reported killed, along with two of the assailants, whose identity has not been ascertained.
Russians get the hell out
oh...thought this was going to be a Chicago headline....

Local media confirmed that Ukraine is trying to resurrect Hitler. Confirmed!
I'm reading the pro-Kiev protestors here. Can't we stop the rhetoric, and pray for those who lost their lives and their families in this cowardly attack on civilians at a checkpoint? Looking at it as an outsider, wouldn't eveyone be better off if they stayed in their occupied buildings and avoided escalation until there's a vote? The irony is that western Ukraine probably would've prevailed in the vote with Crimea no longer voting in Ukraine.
Now you've probably got a Republic of Donetsk that can never be reconciled to western Ukraine.
