Parliament on Feb. 22 voted
overwhelmingly to impeach embattled Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych.
Lawmakers applauded as the votes came in – 328 in all – to oust the president.
Following the vote, parliamentarian stood and sang the national anthem.

Rumors swirled earlier in the day that
he had resigned, but in a pre-recorded video interview, the defiant president
said: “I am not planning to leave the country. I am the legitimate president
and I am not going to resign.”

In the interview with a floor lamp to
his right side, illuminating the soft yellow curtains behind him, Yanukovych is
seen talking to someone to the side of the camera, gesturing often with a dark
suit and blue tie.
