Thousands of people have paid their last respects to a top separatist commander in the eastern Ukrainian region of Donetsk.
At least 5,000 mourners queued on October 19 outside Donetsk's opera theater, where the body of Arseny Pavlov, a Russian citizen who was better known by the nickname Motorola, was displayed.
The ostentatious memorial ceremony was shown live on Russian state television.
Pavlov, 33, died on October 16 when a bomb exploded in his apartment block in Donetsk.
He headed a fighting force called the Sparta battalion.
A top Donetsk separatist leader blamed the Ukrainian authorities for the blast and said the killing amounted to a "declaration of war," sparking concerns of new violence by separatists whose war with Kyiv’s forces has killed more than 9,600 people in eastern Ukraine since April 2014.
