Two dead, several wounded in Kharkov fighting

BBC and the newspaper Vechernii Kharkov (“Evening Kharkov”) report that two people are dead and several wounded in a fight in central Kharkov tonight.  Gunshots were fired in the conflict between “pro-Russian activists” and Ukrainians.  Ukrainian sources claim the Russians provoked things, but the reality is unclear from accounts.  Meanwhile, both the pro-Russian and pro-Ukrainian sides are organizing massive demonstrations in central Kharkiv for Sunday, March 16, the date of the Crimean referendum.
