Shakhtar Donetsk tops Zorya Luhansk 3-1 to secure 5th straight Ukrainian Premier League title
CHERKASY, Ukraine - Shakhtar Donetsk won the Ukrainian Premier League title Sunday as its home city is holding a referendum on secession.
Shakhtar secured its fifth straight title with a 3-1 win over Zorya Luhansk in a game played in an empty stadium at a neutral venue in Cherkasy, central Ukraine, amid widespread unrest in the east.
Shakhtar's home city of Donetsk is the centre of the self-proclaimed People's Republic of Donetsk, where pro-Russian activists are hosting a vote Sunday that may lead to the region joining Russia.
There have been violent clashes in the city in recent weeks between pro-Ukrainian and pro-Russian demonstrators.
