Attempts were also made on the regional councils of Sumy, Ivano-Frankivsk, Zhytomyr and Vinnytsia, where demonstrations took place and where more are planned for noon on Jan. 24, according to media reports.

The events took place amid a tense political standoff in Kyiv where peace talks were in their second day between the president and three opposition leaders to end an escalating crisis that has seen the deaths of protesters. Afterward, Yanukovych condemned the takeover of public buildings.
