Ukraine Foreign Minister Andrii Deshchytsia speaks during a press conference in Geneva, on April 17, 201418:01 GMT - Pro-referendum rally - Over in Donetsk, some 2,000 people are demonstrating for a united Ukraine in a region where pro-Russian activists have seized public buildings and weapons depots. AFP photographer Anatolii Stepanov says the protesters did not encounter any resistance from the building's security personnel, and told reporters that their sole demand was for the heavily Russified region to stage a referendum on turning Ukraine into a federation with broader local rights Standing before the world's media, Deshchytsia warns the deal must be implemented within 'days' after crisis talks in Geneva. The deal is in sharp contrast to an earlier thinly-veiled warning from Russian leader Vladimir Putin, who left the door open for military intervention in Ukraine.

By Adrian Croft BRUSSELS (Reuters) - NATO is sending part of its naval rapid reaction force to the Baltic Sea as part of a drive to step up the defense of eastern European allies in response to the crisis in Ukraine, the military alliance said on Thursday. Separately, Canada said it had offered six CF-18 fighter planes as its contribution to NATO efforts to beef up its presence in eastern Europe and reassure nervous allies there that NATO would protect them in the event of any Russian aggression. NATO, the 28-member alliance dominated by the United States, has made clear it does not plan to get involved militarily in Ukraine, which is not a NATO member.
