Editor's Note: On April 22, interim President Oleksandr Turchynov announced that Ukraine would restart its anti-terror operation to quell Russian-backed separatist movements in Donetsk Oblast. The operation had been put on hold after quadrilateral talks between the U.S., EU, Russia, and Ukraine in Geneva led to an agreement whereby separatists in eastern Ukraine were requested vacate public spaces and buildings, and surrender their arms. The insurgents have thus far refused to comply with the stipulations of the Geneva Statement, and, since Easter weekend, seized several more buildings in Donetsk Oblast.

On the morning of April 28, separatists seized the police station and city administration building in Kostyantynivka in northern Donetsk Oblast. 

The Kyiv Post will be live blogging events in eastern Ukraine throughout the day.
