Steelworkers employed by billionaire Ukrainian businessman enlist to help push separatists out of the country's east.

    Steelworkers in Ukraine are helping to push pro-Russia activists out of the government buildings that they have been occupying in the country's east.

    The steelworkers are employees of a billionaire Ukrainian businessman, Rinat Akhmetov.

    He asked them to help local police improve security in the city of Mariupol.

    But residents have accused Akhmetov of using his workers for public relations purposes.
