Ukrain: Pro-Russian protesters in eastern Ukraine celebrated Orthodox Easter on Saturday at barricades constructed outside government offices.

The protesters made time for prayers and good wishes, despite rejecting a peace deal offered by the interim Ukrainian government.

Men in military uniforms took their masks off to face a religious procession, which was led by a man carrying a cross, as it passed through a courtyard surrounded by barricades made of barbed wire and tyres.

Easter services were also held in the Ukrainian capital Kiev.
