Thousands of protesters carrying Russian flags filled the street of Donetsk on Friday, as part of a May Day rally.

It comes amid growing tensions between Kiev and Moscow following the annexation of Crimea in March.

The BBC's Steve Rosenberg joined pro-Russian demonstrators as they marched through the city demanding greater autonomy.
