Berkut, Ukraine’s feared riot
police, raided the EuroMaidan camp at Maidan Nezalezhnosti just after 4 a.m.
Dozens were reportedly hospitalized, while many others sought sanctuary at
nearby St. Michael’s monastery.

Some 10,000 demonstrators as
well as opposition leaders turned out to the square on the night before to
protest the Ukrainian government’s decision to abandon a long-anticipated
association agreement with the European Union and to demand the resignations of
President Viktor Yanukovych and the government of Prime Minister Mykola Azarov.

Swedish Foreign Minister Carl Bildt, who has not been afraid
to speak his mind about Yanukovych’s recent decisions, wrote on Twitter that
the attacks in Kyiv were “worrying” and that Sweden was following events
closely.
