Dozens hurt at pro-Russia protest in Ukraine’s Kharkiv

Dozens were hurt Saturday when a pro-Russia protest in Ukraine’s eastern city of Kharkiv turned violent, with demonstrators trying to storm the local government building, an AFP reporter said.

Some 20,000 joined the protest against Kiev’s new pro-West government after the ouster of Kremlin-backed leader Viktor Yanukovych, and later around 300 launched the assault on the government building. Stones and stun grenades were thrown though it was unclear by whom.
