Tensions high on eve of Ukraine's vote

Pro-Russian voters in the east smash up ballot boxes, calling Sunday's presidential elections illegal.

    Amid final preparations for Ukraine's presidential elections, some voters in the east of the country say they will not recognise the vote. They have destroyed ballot boxes, claiming that eastern regions should not be part of the election because they have declared independence from Ukraine.
