A pro-Russian gunman atop a car patrols through the center of Slovyansk, eastern Ukraine, Thursday, May 8, 2014. A strong majority of Ukrainians want their country to remain a single, unified state and this is true even in the largely Russian-speaking east where a pro-Russia insurgency has been fighting for autonomy, a poll released Thursday shows. The survey results were released as the pro-Russia forces were considering whether to go ahead with a referendum on autonomy planned for Sunday in defiance of a call from Russian President Vladimir Putin to delay the vote. A decision was expected later in the day. (AP Photo/Darko Vojinovic)
