    Well thousands have responded to the rise of the right by taking to the streets across Eastern Ukraine in protest at the interim authorities in Kiev.

    Donetsk has seen some of the biggest rallies to demand a referendum on a possible secession.

    Activists across Eastern regions say they're making a stand against the fascist leanings of a post-coup leadership.

    A group of Israel MPs has written an open letter to the President of the European Commission.

    They expressed their concern over the plight of Ukrainian Jews who they say are suffering from constant attacks.

    It's claimed this is a direct result of the rise of nationalists in Kiev.

    Activists from Ukraine's Jewish community have also traveled to Israel to seek support.
