Reacting to developments in Eastern Ukraine in the past 24 hours, a Foreign Office spokesperson said:

"The latest occupations by armed groups of government buildings in towns in eastern Ukraine are a further dangerous escalation of an already dangerous situation.

"Assumptions that Russia is complicit are inevitable as long as Moscow does not publicly distance itself from these latest lawless actions. Russia must desist from steps which destabilise Ukraine and undermine the possibility of Contact Group talks.

European Foreign Ministers will meet on Monday to discuss how to respond to the latest events".
