Ukraine flag replaced with Russian

A pro-Russian crowd in the eastern Ukraine city of Kharkiv cheered as the Ukrainian flag on the top of an administration building was replaced with the Russian tricolour flag.

An activist from Moscow filmed himself, on Saturday, on the roof of the building and waved the flag at the crowds below, before taking down the flag pole to switch the flags over.
