U.S. warns Putin against Ukraine grab amid break-up fears
By Natalia Zinets and Alessandra Prentice KIEV (Reuters) - The United States and European allies warned Russia not to send forces into Ukraine on Sunday as rival neighbors east and west of the former Soviet republic said a power vacuum in Kiev must not let the country break apart. A day after Moscow-backed president Viktor Yanukovich fled to the Russian-speaking east following dozens of deaths on the streets, parliament named its new speaker as interim head of state. An ally of the ousted leader's long jailed rival Yulia Tymoshenko, he aims to swear in a government by Tuesday that can provide authority until a presidential election on May 25. With battle-hardened, pro-Western protesters in control of central Kiev and determined to hold their leaders to account, lawmakers rushed through decisions to cement their power, display their rejection of rampant corruption and bring to book officials who ordered police to fire on Independence Square.
