Pro-russian demonstrators existing mainly of Russian citizens and former Ukrainian berkut have caused a lot of disturbance in the cities of Kharkiv, Donetsk and Luhansk. During the evening of 6th of April the demonstrators captured the state buildings in Kharkiv and Donetsk and the headquarter of SBU in Luhansk. SBU is the Ukrainian security service and in charge of counterintelligence activity and combatting terrorism. At the moment the police in the three mentioned cities are dived into to camp, loyal to Ukraine- or Russia, but the main force of the police are still loyal to Ukraine.
All evidence is pointing toward that this is an russian secret service operation similar to the one we saw in Crimea and this exact operation was performed in these cities during the revolution and even though pro-russian provocateurs where arrested no formal accusations where made. The goal of this operation is the same as in Crimea, meaning the provocateurs wants to create instability and “threats” toward Russian citizens of Ukraine, so Putin can motivate a military campaign to save Russians in Ukraine.
