Ukrainian police take back part of square from protesters
Ukrainian riot police moved in force early on Wednesday into part of the Kiev square where protesters are demonstrating against a government decision to rebuild trade ties with Russia rather than move closer to the European Union. But police stopped operations, while remaining in place, and made no move to pull down tents in the square where protesters have been living. Several hundred demonstrators remained camped there after the initial police action. Police moved in from the northern end of the square after pulling down barricades which had been thrown up across the road by protesters.
