Eastern Ukrainians fear for the future

Residents of a town near the Ukraine-Russia border have few jobs and wonder what a new government will do for them.

    The situation in Kiev did not directly affect farmers and villagers in east Ukraine.

    But there are few employment opportunities in a Cossack town near the Ukraine-Russia border and every promise of investment by the old government was broken.

    In 1932, the area was the breadbasket of the Soviet Union before it suffered a famine that killed an estimated six million people.

    Residents of this town near Kharkiv speak Russian, but say they feel Ukrainian and are now worried about their country's relationship with Russia.

    Al Jazeera's David Chater reports from the Ukrainian-Russian border, near the city of Kharkiv.
