Pro-Russian militants 'disarm Ukraine tanks'

Six vehicles in eastern Ukraine seized says defence ministry

(ANSA) - Rome, April 16 - Pro-Russian militants in eastern Ukraine on Wednesday seized six Ukrainian armoured vehicles, the defence ministry in Kiev announced. Ukraine soldiers manning the vehicles were reportedly disarmed after the tanks were blocked in the city of Kramatorsk. The incident cames a day after Kiev began an "anti-terrorist" operation to remove pro-Russian secessionists from public buildings across eastern Ukraine. NATO is increasing activity in member states bordering Russia, which has massed troops on its neighbour's borders.
