Gun shots in the eastern Ukrainian city of Slaviansk Sunday. Armed pro-Russian separatists control the center of the town and government forces have taken positions at checkpoints around the city. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) KHARKIV RESIDENT, TOFIK, SAYING: "We're travelling from Kharkiv. There is shooting going on, so we are waiting here." Slaviansk is a rebel stronghold. It's not just government troops they're prepared to fight. It's also the ultra-radical opposition group called the Right Sector. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) PRO-RUSSIAN ACTIVIST, MAXIM, SAYING: "I know a lot of people here who are looking forward to see those, how do you call them, the Right Sector. Let them come to us." The crisis in Ukraine has spread beyond the restive east. Overnight, this bank headquarters was set ablaze in the southeastern city of Mariupol. And in the southern city of Odessa, residents mourn the dead after Friday clashes left more than 40 dead. Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseny Yatseniuk came to Odessa on Sunday and accused Russia of engineering the riots that killed so many here. (SOUNDBITE) (Russian) UKRAINIAN PRIME MINISTER ARSENY YATSENIUK SAYING: "Destruction of the country and splitting the country, this is the Russian plan. Odessa was holding on for two months until the Russians sent here more people to heat up the situation. Odessa is far too valuable for Russia. But it is even more valuable for us because it's our Odessa, our country and our people." But calm didn't return to Odessa Sunday. Hundreds of pro-Russian activists attacked a police station and demanded the release of their comrades detained in Friday's riots. Some 30 of them were released, and questions are now being raised about the army's ability, as well as the police, to confront the uprising in their country.
