Protesters in the west of Ukraine have seized government buildings in support of those on the front line in Kyiv.
In the city of Lviv, the regional administration headquarters was stormed by demonstrators who smashed windows and doors and overturned furniture.
The prosecutor’s office was also targeted where the records of activists were burned in an act of defiance.
While other western cities have also had government buildings occupied, the east has remained calm.
The protests highlight Ukraine’s historical divide.
Those in the east nearest to Russia speak Russian as their first language and see Moscow as a source of stability while many in the west lean towards Europe.
