What will tomorrow bring?
Nov. 24, 11:41 p.m. The opposition Batkivshchyna party, whose leader Yulia Tymoshenko remains in prison, is reporting that Berkut anti-riot police are trying to break up the tent city that has been erected on European Square to stage continuous protests. The demonstrators want the government to sign a political and free trade pact with the European Union, something President Viktor Yanukovych is not prepared to do. Kyiv Post deputy chief editor Katya Gorchinskaya reports several thousand demonstrators still in the center, congregated in two main locations — European Square and Maidan Nezalezhnosti. We’ll see if they remain in the morning, or whether the police have been ordered to clear them out. — Brian Bonner
