SLAVIANSK, Ukraine (Reuters) - Pro-Russian separatists who said they were part of a new "Donetsk People's Republic" in eastern Ukraine appealed on Monday for Russian President Vladimir Putin to help defend them against Ukrainian government forces.
Speaking at a news conference at the headquarters of the city administration of Slaviansk, a separatist leader asked Putin "to personally direct your attention to the unfolding situation and help us as much as you can."
