KRAINE, Kiev : Anti-government protesters gather on and around barricades at a road block in central Kiev on January 26, 2014. The Ukrainian opposition vowed to press on with protests despite an offer of top posts made by President Viktor Yanukovych as protesters took control of another building in the capital on January 26. Two months after the protests began in November over his decision to back out of an EU pact Yanukovych on January 25 offered to share leadership with Arseniy Yatsenyuk as prime minister and Vitali Klitschko as deputy prime minister in a bid to end the crisis.

Editor's Note: Anti-government EuroMaidan demonstrations began in Ukraine on Nov. 21, triggered by President Viktor Yanukovych's decision to abandon closer ties with the European Union in favor of Russia, which in December offered him a $15 billion bailout and 33 percent discount on imported natural gas. The demonstrations turned deadly on Jan. 22, when at least three protesters were killed, including two from bullet wounds, during a police assault on the crowd. More than 300 suffered injuries. The tense standoff remains on Hrushevskoho Street near Dynamo Stadium.
