Ukraine's acting president said on April 8 that he would treat Russian separatists who have seized buildings in the east of the country as "terrorists" who will be prosecuted with the full force of the law, as separatists still held on to the security service building in the city of Lugansk after breaking into its massive weapons cache and releasing several activists who had been accused of plotting to stage a coup.

The Security Service of Ukraine said that it has today negotiated the release of 56 unarmed people from the state agency's headquarters, but that talks continue with armed pro-Russian separatists holding the SBU building.
