Throughout Monday more militants, with Russian weapons and uniforms identical to those of the forces in Crimea, have been taking over police stations (while beating up the policemen which refused to join them) and key administrative buildings. Some of them openly admitted of being Russian officers.
Meanwhile the Ukrainian government pledged to free the occupied buildings. However this promise did not materialize, and no Ukrainian police, national guards, or military were even seen in the affected towns.
The EU approved a nearly 2 Billion Euro fund for Ukraine, and imposed further sanctions on corrupt Ukrainians and Russians.
The USA approved a fund of over 1 Billion and is developing a further list of sanctions.
Russia put their army on Ukraine's border on the highest possible level of combat readiness.
