Germany is advising its citizens to leave Ukraine's troubled east and south, citing increasing tension in the region and risks of being detained by separatists.
Four Germans were among a team of European military observers that were held for more than a week by insurgents in the separatist stronghold of Slovyansk until their release on Saturday.
Germany's foreign minister, Frank-Walter Steinmeier, has called for all sides in the conflict to hold a second diplomatic conference in Geneva. He has urged all to agree to conduct presidential elections to give Ukraine's new leadership "democratic legitimacy."
