Gunmen took over the city council building in Donetsk.

Russian subversive groups and local separatists began to seize administration buildings in eastern Ukraine on April 6. They also take over security service offices and police stations that have armouries.
The Ukrainian authorities decided to launch an anti-terror operation in the country's east. Troops and military equipment were sent to the Donbass region.
The airport near Kramatork in the north of the Donetsk region, which had been seized by Russian saboteurs and separatists, was freed on April 15.
