Violence and bloodshed continues in Ukraine, days before the Crimean region votes on a referendum to join Russia. In an unusually emotional speech, German Chancellor Angela Merkel warned of "catastrophe" unless Moscow changes course. (SOUNDBITE) (German) GERMAN CHANCELLOR, ANGELA MERKEL, SAYING: "Ladies and gentlemen, if Russia continues on its course of the past weeks, it will not only be a catastrophe for Ukraine. We would not only see it, also as neighbours of Russia, as a threat. And it would not only change the European Union's relationship with Russia. No, this would also cause massive damage to Russia, economically and politically." Here in the eastern city of Donetsk, a young man was stabbed to death in violence between pro-Russian and pro-European demonstrators. . (SOUNDBITE)(Russian) UNIDENTIFIED MAN, SAYING: "They simply kicked him to death, and I don't know with what exactly they beat him but I took one tool to show you how they resolve disputes here. It's the worst unrest since the Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovich was ousted last month and pro-Russian forces seized Crimea. (SOUNDBITE)(Russian) UNIDENTIFIED MAN, SAYING: "I don't care who is protesting on which side. I just wanted to stop people being stepped on and they beat me up." (SOUNDBITE)(Russian) UNIDENTIFIED MAN, SAYING: "At the end when we started folding up our flag they started surrounding us, sprayed gas and throwing stones." Donetsk -- like Crimea -- is a mainly Russian speaking city. Tensions are at fever-pitch here as well as in Crimea as diplomatic efforts intensify ahead of Sunday's vote....in a country divided and on the edge of war.
