Ukraine's interior minister says pro-Russia demonstrators who seized the regional administration building in the country's second-largest city have been driven out of the building and about 70 of them were arrested.
The protesters were calling for a referendum on seceding from Ukraine.
Pro-Russia demonstrators also seized the administration building in Donetsk and called for a referendum.
Both cities are in Ukraine's east, where hostility is strong toward the government that took power in February after the ouster of Kremlin-friendly president Viktor Yanukovych.
