Ukraine: Pro-Russians storm government HQ in Luhansk
Hundreds of pro-Russian separatists stormed the regional government headquarters in Ukraine's eastern city of Luhansk today, gaining access by breaking windows and facing no resistance from police.
Local police said the separatists had gained entry and video footage showed men holding shields and wearing helmets walking around what appeared to be the foyer of the building. Pro-Russian separatists had previously occupied only the local security services' building in Luhansk.
