LUHANSK – Pro-Russian separatists have seized a government building in eastern Ukrainian city Luhansk on Tuesday.

The separatists broke the doors and windows of the building with sticks after lowering the Ukraine flag.

The group demand a referendum, the released of detained Russian supporters and official status for the Russian language.

On Monday, the United States announced further sanctions on Russia following Russia’s alleged failure to live up to obligations agreed to at  a multilateral meeting in Geneva on April 17.
