Six armoured personnel carriers entered the eastern Ukrainian town of Slaviansk, on Wednesday with the lead vehicle bearing the Russian flag, a Reuters eyewitness said.

Several armed men, who wore mismatched battle fatigues and appeared to be pro-Russian activists, sat atop each of the vehicles. The vehicles stopped outside the town's city hall which is occupied by separatists.
