Pro-EU crowd marching towards regional govt HQ in Odessa

Pro-Europe campaigners in Odessa have cut their rally short near the monument to Duc de Richelieu, the city's first governor, and marched to the regional administration building, an Interfax correspondent reported.

About a thousand demonstrators are marching along the central streets, chanting: "Odessa, Rise!" Meanwhile, several dozen policemen and several hundred pro-government activists, holding Party of Regions flags, have gathered in front of the regional administration headquarters.
