A total of nine people were killed in clashes in Kiev on Tuesday, according the Ukrainian police. The dead include seven protesters and two policemen.

Ukrainian riot police advanced on the heart of 12-week-old protests against President Viktor Yanukovich. Nationwide protests against Yanukovich erupted in November after he bowed to Russian pressure and pulled out of a planned far-reaching trade agreement with the European Union, deciding instead to accept a Kremlin bailout for the former Soviet republic's heavily indebted economy.
