Ukrainians Go To The Polls

Ukrainians go to the polls to vote in a presidential election, which authorities hope can help resolve a confrontation with Russia that has split the country. Reports said early signs pointed to a high turnout in the capital, Kyiv, and western Ukraine. However, the regional administration in Donetsk said that only 426 out of 2,430 polling stations in the eastern region were open and none in the city of Donetsk itself. Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk has urged Ukrainians to vote to "defend Ukraine."
