Pro-Russia rebels force closure of Ukraine's Donetsk airport

Published: 05.26.14, 10:20 / Israel News

DONESTSK - Armed pro-Russian separatists forced the closure of Donetsk airport in eastern Ukraine, an airport representative said on Monday, a day after they prevented a majority of the region's voters from taking part in presidential elections.

 

Earlier this month, the pro-Moscow rebels declared autonomous "people's republics" in the regions of Donetsk and Luhansk after holding makeshift referendums. They say the two regions, which include the Donbass coalfield, are no longer part of Ukraine. (Reuters)
