Ukraine’s Richest Man Speaks Against Anti-Kiev Separatists

World Today

Ukrainian metals tycoon Rinat Akhmetov, riding a wave of public dismay with the fighting, issued a strong call against the mutiny in the east, which he described as a “fight against the citizens of our region” that has devastated Ukraine’s industrial heartland. Last week, his company organized citizen patrols of steelworkers who worked alongside police in Mariupol to improve security. The move forced anti-Kiev seperatists to vacate the government buildings they had seized in the key Black Sea port.
