    0

    KIEV: Opposition protesters were on Monday locked in a tense standoff with Ukrainian security forces in Kiev after hours of unprecedented clashes deep into the night left dozens wounded and parts of the center resembling a battlefield. The clashes, the worst in Kiev in recent times, came amid mounting anger over new restrictions on protests ordered by President Viktor Yanukovych after almost two months of protests over his refusal to sign a pact for integration with the European Union. A special commission set up by Yanukovych was to meet representatives of the opposition for emergency talks but it was unclear if this could in any way help ease the crisis.
