Ukraine crisis: Moscow rally against Ukraine uprising

A rally is under way in Moscow to condemn the uprising in Ukraine which led to the downfall of its pro-Russian president, one year ago.

Russian state media heavily promoted the "anti-coup" march, with the slogan "We won't forget! We won't forgive!".

Russian police reported that 35,000 people turned out, carrying banners bearing the same words.

Sarah Rainsford reports from there.
