Protests Turn Violent

Kiev, Ukraine's capital city, is caught in pitched battles between protesters and government soldiers. They began in December as a series of rallies and takeovers of government offices to protest Ukraine's retreat from a European agreement in favor of a deal with Russia. Now the protests are testing Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych's ability to stay in power. Since a violent response to the protests failed to shut down the opposition, Yanukovych has back-pedaled and cancelled harsh anti-opposition legislation. That about-face, too, has not stopped protesters who now see little option for retreat. "We'll be here until we win," one protester told Bloomberg, "Otherwise our fate is sealed."
