KIEV, April 6 (Reuters) - Ukraine's acting president, Oleksander Turchinov, has cancelled a trip to Lithuania scheduled for Monday to deal with protests in eastern Ukraine, where pro-Russian protesters seized a regional government building and state security offices, the parliamentary press service said on Sunday.

The statement said Turchinov was holding an emergency meeting with the heads of security services.
