Tensions are increasing in Ukraine. Pro-Russian protesters are seizing government buildings and in some cases, hostages in several eastern cities.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov says the wishes of those in southeastern Ukraine should be reflected in the country’s new draft constitution. CCTV’s Stephanie Freid reports.
