Tens of thousands gather in Kyiv's Independence Square to hear the line-up of the new pro-Western cabinet on Feb. 26. The line-up of the new pro-Western cabinet is due to be read out to the masses on Kiev's barricades-riven Independence Square -- the crucible of the latest wave of protests and also the site of the pro-democracy 2004 Orange Revolution that first nudged Ukraine on its Westward course.
