Russian Village Declares Independence

Residents of a village close to Moscow have declared their independence from Russia.

They made the decision after a toll road was built there despite a local referendum which was 95 percent against it.

The campaigners from Shebantsevo say their property rights have been violated so they now want to break away and join the European Union.
