 - RT: Embattled Ukraine: Kiev’s vicious cycle of violence rages on


Rioters and police in central Kiev are exchanging smoke and stun grenades, as a fresh wave of violence is gripping the Ukrainian capital. While the rioters have no clear demands, the opposition keeps pushing for the president’s resignation.

Wednesday, February 19

11:48 GMT:

The EU is expected to agree on Ukraine sanctions shortly, according to European Commission President Jose Manuel Barroso, as quoted by Reuters.

"We have ... made it clear that the EU will respond to any deterioration on the ground. We therefore expect that targeted measures against those responsible for violence and use of excessive force can be agreed by our member states as a matter of urgency," Barroso said in a statement.

The EU is to hold an extraordinary foreign ministers’ meeting on Thursday.


11:47 GMT:

The incumbent Defense Minister of Ukraine Pavel Lebedev said he couldn’t guarantee that the military forces won’t interfere in the conflict. Lebedev has confirmed that he “made an order” to send landing troops from the central Ukrainian city of Dnepropetrovsk to the capital, Kiev.

However, the Defense Ministry later denied that any military units were being relocated to disperse protesters in Kiev, as quoted by Itar-Tass.


11:12 GMT:

The number of the dead officers from the violent clashes between police and protesters in Kiev has risen to 10 people,

10:45 GMT:

Ukrainian Olympic chief and former pole vault champion Sergey Bubka on Wednesday called for an end to violence in his country as Ukrainian athletes struggled to focus on competing at the Sochi Winter Games.

"I want to bring Olympic Truce to my country," Bubka said on Twitter. "Dialogue is power, violence is weakness.


"Our athletes are competing hard in Sochi, but peacefully and with honour. Violence has no place in the world," said Bubka. (Reuters)


10:38 GMT:

Ukraine’s President Viktor Yanukovich announced on Thursday, February 20, a day of mourning for those who have died in the Kiev insurgency. The latest reports from Ukraine suggest that 25 people, including nine police officers, have perished in clashes. Over 70 law enforcement officers suffered gunshot wounds. The number of injured in the riots is measured in the hundreds.


10:26 GMT:

European Union foreign ministers will hold an emergency meeting on Ukraine in Brussels on Thursday, an EU official said.

The ministers are expected to discuss imposing sanctions on people responsible for violence and the use of excessive force during protests in Ukraine, which killed at least 25 people. (Reuters)


10:13 GMT:

The blood was spilt in Ukraine due to the criminal activity of radical opposition forces, Russia’s Foreign Ministry has said in a statement. Russia demands the opposition leaders stop the bloodshed and immediately renew negotiations with the legitimate government without threats or ultimatums.

“Military men who stand up for the legitimate state rights to ensure the law and order, as well as the civilian population, are among the dead and injured,” the statement goes on to say.



09:57 GMT:

Ukraine’s Interior Ministry says that the victims of the riots in Kiev could have been killed by radicals, as the country’s security forces don’t use firearms.

“Judging by the type of wounds the killed people have (non-perforating wounds, wounds in the back of the neck), as well as by the weapons we confiscate, it can be supposed that this bodily harm might have been caused by aggressive radical rioters,” the statement on the ministry’s website stated.

“The employees of police, as well as Interior Ministry security forces of Ukraine, don’t use firearms, only non-lethal weapons,” the statement underlined.


09:41 GMT:

Polish PM Donald Tusk has called for sanctions against Ukraine’s government following deadly clashes between police and protesters.

"I will today hold talks with the leaders of the biggest EU countries and institutions, and persuade them to impose sanctions - personal and financial," Tusk told a special session of the Polish parliament, as quoted by Reuters.

"I hope that such a stance from Poland will help the EU as a whole in making fast decisions," he added.
