How the unrest in Ukraine began
President Viktor F. Yanukovych’s signals in early 2013 that Ukraine would make an agreement with the European Union to the angry protests by the end of the year that flared in Kiev’s main square. There have been related events that have occurred like Ukraine’s refusal to free the main opposition leader.
Who is President Yanukovych, and why has he fled?
From being elected president of Ukraine in 2010 to being removed from office by Parliament and charged with mass murder over the past week, President Viktor F. Yanukovych has been at the center of the Ukrainian crisis since the beginning. Ukraine’s acting government on Monday declared the former president, Viktor F. Yanukovych, a fugitive sought for mass murder, but it seemed at a loss to find the man whose authority had crumbled over the weekend.
