Russia's ambassador to the United Nations has told an emergency meeting of the Security Council that Moscow "does not want war" with Ukraine.

Vitaly Churkin was responding to a direct question from Ukraine's interim PM Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

But Churkin gave an impassioned defence of Crimea's right to hold a referendum on whether to join Russia.

In the east Ukraine city of Donetsk, one person died in violence between rival protesters.
