Russian separatists regroup in the city of Donetsk after being driven out of Sloviansk by rebels. In front of a crowd of thousands, they are vowing to renew their fight against the government in Kiev. Pavel Gubarev, the self-described governor of the Donetsk People’s Republic, tells the crowd:
We will begin a real partisan war around the whole perimeter of Donetsk. We will drown these wretches in blood.
