Ukraine crisis: Easter celebrations amid unrest

Tensions remain high in eastern Ukraine, where government buildings in several towns have been seized by pro-Russian groups in recent weeks.

The violence flared on Easter Sunday when least three people were killed in a shooting at a checkpoint manned by pro-Russian separatists near Sloviansk.

The BBC's Natalia Antelava visited a small town near Ukraine's border with Russia - where people had gathered at an Orthodox church to celebrate Easter despite the ongoing unrest.
