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

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.

Altogether, the SBU announced that, in the last 24 hours, some 1,500 firearms and 100,000 rounds of ammunition have fallen into the hands of “criminals.”

Thousands are picketing the Interior Ministry building in Chernihiv, reported Espresso TV.
