The crisis in Ukraine, sparked by President Yanukovych's rejection of a European integration pact, has turned deadly as the passage of antiprotest laws triggered riots. According to Kateryna Choursina and Daryna Krasnolutska of Bloomberg News, violence has snowballed this week "amid frustration among protesters that demands for snap elections and governance changes were being ignored." Andriy Parubiy, a lawmaker in Ukraine's Parliament, said before protest marches in Kiev, "Today, we face the choice of whether we'll be a colony of Russia or an independent state."
