At least a thousand pro-Russian protesters marched from Lenin Square to the regional administration building in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, calling for the return of pro-Moscow President Viktor Yanukovich. The building, heavily guarded by police, has been the scene of regular demonstrations since Yanukovich's ouster and pro-Russian protesters have previously stormed the building.
