Clashes Shatter Truce In Ukraine
Ukraine's crisis erupted at the end of November, when Yanukovych backed away from plans to ink a broad cooperation pact with the European Union and instead signed a $15 billion financial-aid package with Moscow. Pro-Europe protesters took to the streets of Kiev and began occupying administrative buildings, prompting Ukraine's Parliament, controlled by Yanukovych's allies, to pass a package of laws on Jan. 16 restricting freedom of assembly, freedom of speech and other basic rights

Fierce clashes between police and protesters, some including gunfire, shattered a brief truce in Ukraine's besieged capital Thursday, killing numerous people. The deaths came in a new eruption of violence just hours after the country's embattled president and the opposition leaders demanding his resignation called for a truce and negotiations to try to resolve Ukraine's political crisis.
