Popular
on social media

Some 500
police officers broke up a tent camp at 4 a.m on Nov. 30, smashing heads and pummeling hundreds of mostly young pro-European protesters in a brutal attack that shocked the nation. Opposition blamed Yanukovych of ordering
disperse of the rally, whose participants were demanding president’s
resignation.

Sergiy
Liovichkin, Yanukovych’s chief of staff, resigned just in hours after the
incident, Kyiv Post sources said. Two influential politicians, Inna Bohoslovska and
Davyd Zhvania, left Yanukovych’s party in protest. Bohoslovska also call on
Yanukovych to resign himself.

But it
seems that Yanukovych would rather punish his subordinates.
