Ukraine PM fears new Soviet Union

In the Ukrainian city of Slaviansk pro-Russian separatists are proclaiming a regional republic. They're here in support of fellow separatists refusing to leave public buildings they've occupied despite an international agreement to end such actions. In Moscow President Vladimir Putin attends a church service for Easter commemorating the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Ukraine's prime minister says he's worried how far Putin might go to resurrect the former Soviet Union. (SOUNDBITE)(English) UKRAINE PRIME MINISTER ARSENY YATSENIUK SAYING: "I believe that you do remember his famous Munich speech saying that the biggest disaster of the former century is the collapse of the Soviet Union. I consider that the biggest disaster of this century would be the restoring of the Soviet Union under the auspices of President Putin." Mediators from the Organisation for Security and Co-operation in Europe arrived in Kiev on Saturday on a mission to ease the tensions.
