Donetsk

Pro-Russian demonstrators stand at a statue of Soviet state founder Vladimir Lenin as they attend a rally in Donetsk, Ukraine on March 9, 2014. Russian forces tightened their grip on Crimea Sunday, despite a U.S. warning to Moscow that annexing the southern Ukrainian region would close the door to diplomacy in a tense East-West standoff.
