Pro-Russian insurgents who have seized government buildings across eastern Ukraine dug in Tuesday, fortifying their positions and erecting fresh barricades, despite another government announcement that it was acting to restore order in the restive region.In Kiev, Ukraine's acting president, Oleksandr Turchynov, announced an "anti-terrorist operation" to root out the separatists, but it was unclear how that measure differed from the one announced Monday, which resulted in no visible action. The unrest comes weeks after Russia annexed Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula, after a pro-Russian president was ousted after three months of pro-Western protests.The city of Horlivka, not far from the Russian border, where the local police station has been seized by separatists, has been turned into the latest of a wave of sit-ins across eastern Ukraine, where at least nine cities appeared in control of the insurgents.
