You're reading: One death reported as public outrage spreads throughout Ukraine with takeovers of government buildings (UPDATE)
Popular
on social media

On Feb. 19, activists took over or
set on fire regional and local government buildings in at least nine regional capitals:
Zhytomyr, Khmelnytsky, Chernivtsi, Ternopil, Lutsk, Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk,
Uzhgorod and Rivne.

While Yanukovych has never been popular in western Ukraine, the discontent — coming after at least 26 persons were killed on Feb. 18 in Kyiv after clashes between police and protesters — also exists in northern and eastern parts of the nation.

Scuffles also broke out between protesters
and police during takeover attempts and other incidents in the regional capitals of Sumy, Poltava and
Kharkiv.
