Flights Suspended at Donetsk Airport Due to Rebel Takeover

Early Monday morning a group of armed rebels took over the Donetsk Airport, causing all flights into and out of the airport to be suspended.  The men who took over the airport are armed members of the Donetsk People’s Republic, who took over the airport and demanded the withdrawal of all Ukrainian troops stationed at the airport.  No shots were fired during the incident.

The airport has put a statement on their website saying that the flight suspension is temporary, but has not indicated when they will resume.  They have only said that flights will resume “at a later point.”  The seizure of the airport comes a day after chocolate magnate Petro Poroshenko claimed a win in the Ukrainian presidential election.  The official election results have not yet been released.
