Children sing during a service in the cathedral of the eastern Ukrainian city of Slavyansk on April 19, 2014, on the eve Easter celebrations, the main religious holiday of the Orthodox churchSlavyansk (Ukraine) (AFP) - Resurrection and rebellion -- in Ukraine's separatist east this weekend, those two themes collided as pro-Kremlin militants briefly subjugated their political passions to religious ones in a celebration of Easter. The sight of a pro-Russian rebel, attired in combat camouflage, stepping out of the Orthodox Church of the Holy Spirit in the flashpoint town of Slavyansk late Saturday captured the incongruity in symbolic fashion. Father Roman, leading the prayers, avoided any mention at all of the bellicose turmoil that has gripped Slavyansk over the past week, dividing its population of 130,000. On the far side of the vast square on which the brightly-lit church stood, pro-Kremlin militants in uniforms stripped of insignia, some carrying Kalashnikov rifles, chatted in front of the sandbagged barricade set up at the entrance to the town hall.
