Street cleaners sweep away bullet cases as they remove rubbish and a barricade erected by pro-Russian protesters near a building of the SBU state security service in Donetsk, April 8.

It was immediately impossible to determine how that many bullet cases appeared on the street.

Police detained 70 pro-Moscow protesters occupying a regional administration building in eastern Ukraine overnight, but others held out in a standoff in two further cities in what Kiev says is a Russian-led plan to dismember the country.

The standoff, however, continued in the mining centre of Donetsk -- Yanukovich's home base -- where a group of pro-Russian deputies inside the main regional authority building on Monday declared a separatist republic.
