Ukrainians wearing balaclavas threw bricks at the Russian bank Sberbank during a pro-Ukrainian/anti-separatist rally in Kiev on Sunday. Separatists in the eastern Donetsk and Luhansk regions have declared independence and asked to join Russia. Moscow has rebuffed their appeals, but is seen by Ukraine and the West as actively supporting the insurgency.
