Things aren’t looking any better in Ukraine after a night of violence

  • Yesterday Clashes between Ukrainian security forces and anti-government protesters left at least 25 people dead, while reports of new uprisings and weapon thefts outside Kiev began to emerge, and demonstrations continued as fires consumed the capital city’s Trade Unions Building.
  • Today US and European leaders confirmed they are weighing the possibility of levying new sanctions against Ukraine, while Russia has threatened to stabilize the region itself. Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych replaced his top general on Wednesday; however, the move is unlikely to calm anyone’s nerves in Kiev.

Flaring tensions at protest sites leave more than a dozen dead in two countries

  • Four people were killed in Thailand after following a series of gun battles between law enforcement and anti-government protesters, with dozens more reported wounded as a result of the violence. An anti-corruption board in the company also announced plans to file charges against current Prime Minister Yingluck Shinawatra, an elected official viewed as a proxy for deposed leader Thaksin Shinawatra.
  • Nine people were killed in Ukraine after police tried to use armored personnel carriers to smash through protesters’ barricades at the  Khreschatyk Hotel; an act which ended with both vehicles on fire and enraged protesters re-occupying the City Hall in Kiev. Officials have since shut down the city’s subway systems as well, to try and prevent large numbers of additional protesters from flocking to the downtown area. source

Ongoing Ukrainian protests lead prime minister to step down

  • Last Week Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov was more than a little dismissive of the protesters who’d spent two-plus months gathered in Kiev, saying demonstrations only continued because the government allowed them to, even as government officials met with opposition leaders to try and bring an end to the unrest.
  • Tuesday Azarov and his entire cabinet stepped down from their posts, the latest in a series of concessions meant to build goodwill between demonstrators and the government. President Viktor Yanukovich also instructed two deputies to roll back harsh anti-protest legislation that was rammed through parliament less than two weeks ago. Opposition leaders celebrated the news, but say protests will continue until the country further restricts recent expansions of presidential power. source

People should not think that the government lacks available resources to put an end to this. It is our constitutional right and obligation to restore order in the country.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov • Warning protesters not to push the government any further, after saying there was no chance of President Viktor Yanukovych’s administration leaving office early, when asked to comment on the deteriorating situation in his country. It’s not clear Azarov believes himself to be speaking to/for though, seeing as protesters have announced a truce amid ongoing talks between boxer-turned-politician Vitaly Klitschko, other opposition leaders and government officials. source
