Pro-Russian militia have hoisted a Russian flag on Ukrainian army armoured vehicles in Slaviansk and stormed city council building in Donetsk. The activists drive through the eastern town in a bid to undermine the central government's attempt to reassert control of the area. Now NATO says it will step up its military deployments by sea, air and land within days and calls on Russia not to support armed militia in Ukraine. Russia has refused to recognise Ukraine's pro-Western government since the countries president was ousted in February. Report by Sarah Kerr.
