KIV08. Slaviansk (Ukraine), 20/04/2014.- People stand around near burned out vehicles in front of a pro-Russian blockade near Slaviansk, Ukraine, 20 April 2014. According to media reports, several pro-Russian activists reportedly died following an exchange of gunfire on the night of 19 April near Slaviansk. Protesters continue to maintain camps in four cities in the Donetsk region, demanding a new federal system with broad autonomy for eastern regions. Russia, the United States, Ukraine and the European Union agreed 17 April to a de-escalation deal under which pro-Russian separatists in the east must disarm and vacate occupied public buildings and squares.
