Ukrainian national anthem played in occupied Donetsk

Unknown patriots turn on the Ukrainian anthem in Donetsk city centre with the help of hidden loudspeakers

Ukrainian national anthem was played this Wednesday morning in all the cities and towns across Ukraine. The militant-occupied eastern city of Donetsk was no exception.

Despite the danger of being caught by the so-called Donetsk People's Republic authorities, unknown patriotic Ukrainians turned on the anthem using the hidden loudspeakers.

The CCTV footage published on social media shows surprised lonely passers-by, who are trying to figure out where the sound comes from.

The anthem was played at about 6 a.m.
