Ukraine crisis: Separatists plan breakaway elections

Ukrainians go to the polls this weekend in a key parliamentary election, dominated by the ongoing military conflict in the east.

For the first report he was in a part of the east controlled by Ukrainian forces.

This report takes him to Luhansk and Donetsk - cities in rebel territory which have strong trade links with Russia and where there will be no election this weekend.
