At least 13 are dead today as fires rage around protestors who are resisting riot police throughout the Ukrainian capital.
Most of the violence occurred in Independence Square, where demonstrations against President Viktor F. Yanukovych have been held for the past two months.
The protests are backed by USAID, the National Endowment for Democracy, Freedom House, the George Soros’ Open Society Institute and various other public-private non-government organizations.
