Ukraine crisis: Pro-Russia rebel vote to go ahead

Three million ballot papers - enough for the whole Donetsk region - have been printed, reports Richard Galpin

Pro-Russian activists in eastern Ukraine have said they will not postpone a referendum on autonomy planned for Sunday.

The decision comes one day after Russian President Vladimir Putin urged delaying the vote to create the conditions necessary for dialogue.

Ukrainian authorities said "anti-terror" operations would continue regardless of the rebels' decision.
