Increasing tensions in eastern Ukraine played out on the streets of Donetsk when pro-Russia supporters threw eggs at supporters of Ukrainian presidential candidate Yulia Tymoshenko outside a regional government building.

U.S. Vice President Joe Biden told Russia on Tuesday that "time is short" for action on defusing the crisis in eastern Ukraine, but Moscow refused to be rushed, saying it could handle any tougher economic sanctions the West might impose.
