KIEV, April 17. /ITAR-TASS/. Federalization supporters in the eastern Ukrainian city of Sloviansk have occupied the radio and television broadcasting center which airs Ukrainian TV channels in the cities of Sloviansk, Kramatorsk, Horlivka and Makeevka, local media reported.

Around 200 supporters of federalization in Ukraine have gathered for a rally at the Prokofyev international airport in Donetsk region, according to local media reports.
