    Pro-Russian demonstrators have clashed with anti-government protesters in Ukraine’s south and eastern regions.

    Several attempts by opposition supporters to hold rallies over this weekend’s historic events have been roundly shut down.

    In the poor industrial city of Donetsk, pro-Russian protesters made their feelings clear over their allegiances.

    A scene repeated in several other cities like Kerch in Crimea where some Ukrainians have spoken openly of their desire to see the country split along political lines.
