The mass protests in the capital of Kiev erupted after Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych spurned a pact with the European Union in favor of close ties with Russia, which offered him a $15 billion bailout.
According to AP, opposition leaders in Ukraine are asking protesters to refrain from clashing with police for the next 24 hours.
Emerging after three hours of talks with President Viktor Yaanukovych on Wednesday evening, opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk said he gave the president until the following evening either to move to ease the political crisis or face popular rage.
“Tomorrow we will go forward together,” Yatsenyuk told a crowd of tens of thousands of demonstrators. “And if it’s a bullet in the forehead, then it’s a bullet in the forehead, but in an honest, fair and brave way.”
