Ukrainian troops have entered the eastern town of Kramatorsk a day after an operation began to recapture areas seized by anti-government separatists.

However, they were blocked by civilians and it is unclear whether they have any control of the town.

In the regional capital, Donetsk, pro-Russian gunmen took control of the mayor's office.

Ukraine's interim Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has warned Russia wants to build a new "Berlin Wall".

In a televised address he demanded that Russia "stop supporting terrorists in Ukraine".
