Meanwhile, the eastern-Ukraine city of Kharkiv, which is the second-largest city in the country and home to a large Russian-speaking population, witnessed clashes on March 1. Pro-Russia activists clashed with supporters of the new Ukrainian government before trying to seize power over the regional governor's headquarters, according to Russian non-government news agency Interfax.
