Fighting between protesters and police in the Ukrainian capital Kiev continued to intensify on Monday, following the passage of an anti-demonstration law aimed at silencing dissent in the country. Demonstrators responded to the police’s use of teargas with molotov cocktails. The Interior Ministry said that 80 police officers had been hospitalized during the clashes. AFP reported that more than 200 demonstrators had been injured so far.
On Monday, the Kyiv Post in its live blog drew attention to a man who appears to be a protester making a dramatic plea to the international community, asking for help.
