DONETSK, April 27./ITAR-TASS/. Protesters in Ukraine’s eastern city of Donetsk have taken over the building of the regional television centre and are now adjusting equipment to organize broadcasting of Russian television channels.

Protesters, who came to picket the television centre after a rally in Donetsk’s central Lenin square, are now marching back to the square.

According to preliminary information, broadcasting of a number of Russian channel has already been resumed in Donetsk.

Earlier on Sunday, a rally in Donetsk’s central Lenin Square gathered about 3,000 participants. The rally began with a minute of silence in the memory of Berkut police unit officers who had been killed in clashes with radicals in Kiev’s Independence Square and activists killed by Right Sector radicals at a check point in Slavyansk in the Easter night.

Protesters demanded a referendum on federalization of Ukraine, chanting slogans “No to bloody Kiev junta!” and “Stop the occupation of Donbas [a large Ukrainian coalmining region]!” Activists of the self-proclaimed Donetsk People’s Republic fenced off the square to ensure law and order at the rally.
