Russia and pro-Russian groups continue to plague Ukraine. The Ukrainian military begins an anti terrorist operation. Russia, according to Ria Novosti, has condemned the Ukraine’s decision to defend her national security and integrity.

The Kyiv Post quotes Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatseniuk as stating that Russia is exporting oil, gas and now terrorism. Russia naturally denies any this. However some of the pro-Russian groups have claimed, on mainstream media broadcasts, to be getting supplies from Russia.

Groups of unidentified persons have blocked the regular train route between Donetsk and Kramatorsk. The trains have been forced to take an alternate route, according to Interfax-Ukraine. Many tanks, meant for Ukraine but now flying the Russian flag, have arrived in Kramatorsk as well.

Not all tanks have switched sides, tweeted Raniah Salloum. Salloum is the foreign affairs editor with Spiegel Online and states Ukrainian soldiers are headed to the Kramatorsk airfield. MSNBC reported that Ukrainian has in fact taken back that airfield.

Pro-Russian forces have taken control of the mayor’s office in Donetsk, according to the BBC. The City Council building has fallen as well, according to Pravda, Russian media.

Odessa too faces turmoil. The Odessa "Антимайдан" has urged civilians to take to the streets in protest, according to Pravda.

NATO will bolster its military presence along its eastern border, stated NATO Secretary General Anders Fogh Rasmussen, according to the Associated Press. Tensions continue to rise in Ukraine.
