Ukraine crisis: warning shots at border confirm new Europe's new frontier

Warning shots fired at an observation plane on patrol over Crimea, as Russia rejects calls for talks

A new frontier has been laid down within Europe as Russian forces laid landmines at the top of the Crimean peninsula and fired warning shots at a European observer mission.

A convoy from the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE) was stopped by Russian soldiers and armed militias on a main road into the Crimean peninsula.

Three bursts of automatic gunfire were fired into the air as the checkpoint commanders insisted the OSCE had no authorisation to enter the area. Witness said the shots were fired by men in balaclavas.

The OSCE mission, consisting of more than 50 officers drawn from European armies, was despatched by the Vienna-based organisation to address Russia allegations that Russian speakers in Crimea were being threatened by the new Western-backed government in Kiev.

Meanwhile, an investigative Russian newspaper published photographs of lines of landmines being laid near the second entry point to the peninsula close to the villages of Chongar and Nikolaevka.

Evgenii Feldman, the Moscow-based photographer who took the picture, reported that locals resented the development. "The villagers don’t want to be on the front-line,” he said. "In Chongar, the school has been closed since Wednesday: on the internet, locals are talking about the impossibility of studying under the fire of armoured personnel carriers.”

Ukraine’s foreign minister again called for direct negotiations with Russia to resolve differences over the revolution that triggered the collapse of the Moscow-linked government of President Viktor Yanukovych.

"Our priority is a peaceful settlement of Crimea conflict” said Andriy Deshchytsa. "We will not give up Crimea and will do all possible to protect Ukrainian borders and territorial integrity.”

But Sergei Lavrov, the Russia foreign minister, castigated attempts to portray Russia as responsible for confrontation in Ukraine and said the Kremlin would not negotiate until it was treated differently.

"This crisis was not started by us,” he said. "We are ready to continue dialogue on the understanding that this dialogue should be honest and partner-like, without attempts to portray us as one of the sides in the conflict.”

Crimea’s officials vowed to press ahead with its proposed referendum on joining the Russian Federation next weekend.

Sergei Aksyonov, the premier of the region said: "No one is able to cancel it. It has been called at short notice to avoid provocations, as the situation in Ukraine is quite tense”.

Russia also warned that it had the grounds to stop American inspections of its nuclear arsenal as authorised by arms controls treaties.

"We are ready to take this step in response to the announcement by the Pentagon about stopping cooperation between the defence institutions of Russia and the United States,” a statement said.

The developments came as a senior Pentagon official admitted that it had detected a Russian troop build up around Crimea, days before the Kremlin seized control of the area.

Michael Flynn, the head of the US Defence Intelligence Agency, said the US was aware of the Russian troop movements which preceded the take-over in Crimea.

"I think for easily seven to 10 days leading up to the Russian troops as we see them now in the Crimea, we were providing very solid reporting ... where we move from one level of a condition of warning... to one where we believe things are imminent,” he said.

As the Russian forces in Crimea solidified divisions between the territory and Ukraine, pro-Russian protesters pressed their claim for a vote on their future across the eastern half of the country.

In Ukraine’s eastern cities, which are dominated by Russian speakers, hundreds of people gathered in squares to denounce the new Kiev government as front for extreme Right-wing movements and call for a vote on their future status.

At the feet of a Lenin statue in Donetsk, hundreds of Russians responded to a call to rally in support of the local protest leader, Pavel Gubarev, who was arrested on Thursday after proclaiming himself the people’s governor.

Organisers called Mr Gubarev a victim of political repression and demanded the release of the 30-year businessman, who briefly seized control of the city hall last week.

"We are calling for the freedom of Pavel,” said Robert Donia, the organiser. "We want a vote on the status of the region. The people are for a referendum.”

In a red-tented canopy, a couple offering a book to sign-up for a referendum were doing a brisk trade. On other side of the marble platform stood a table with a box in which people could drop written ballots.

Lilila Khardasheva, a doctor, said Eastern Ukraine needed a vote on its own autonomy because people were fearful of more militant elements in the new pro-Western coalition installed in Kiev. She said Donetsk was putting its faith in Vladimir Putin, the Russian president.

"If Putin came on to this stage, the whole city would be here to cheer him,” she said.

Similar scale protests were reported in Kharkiv, a Russian-language city that is the country’s second-biggest.

British computer experts also reported that Ukraine was coming under a widening barrage of hostility that appears to originate from cyber attacks in Russia.

Dozens of computer networks in Ukraine have been infected by an aggressive new cyber weapon called Snake. It bears similarities with Stuxnet, the malware that disrupted Iran’s nuclear facilities in 2010.

Snake - also known as Ouroboros after the serpent in Greek mythology - gives remote attackers "full remote access to the compromised system”, BAE Systems said.
