Eastern Ukrainians flee to Russia

People in eastern Ukraine are continuing to flee the ongoing violence between government forces and pro-Russian separatist militia.

Russia's emergency situations ministry says it has now taken in more than 14,000 refugees from its neighbour.

Many of them have been given temporary accommodation in hostels, hotels and summer camps.

Three of them spoke to the BBC's Steve Rosenberg about why they decided to leave their homes.
