    The second occupation


    In the days of aggravation of tension in the Crimea, pro-Russia demonstrators had occupied regional administration building of Donetsk, eastern Ukraine major city on March 5 for the second time.


    Thousands of people gathered in front of the building again, listened speeches of Pavel Gubarev then occupied the building and waved Russian Federation flags over the building. A day before, Russian Federation flag had been removed by the Ukrainian authorities from top of the building. While pro-Russia demonstrators were entering the building, there were no clashes with the riot police. Pavel Gubarev greeted the people from the building then the demonstrators left the building for a rally in Lenin Square.


    Pro-Russia demonstrators said “We are against the EU, illegitimate government, fascism and violence”.
