A new round of violence broke out in Kiev on Tuesday as anti-government protesters clashed with police outside Ukraine’s parliament and the nearby headquarters of President Viktor Yanukovych’s ruling party. Opposition medics told AFP at least three protesters were killed and more than 150 were injured, including dozens of police officers. The body count has gone up to at least nine reported deaths. The flare-up comes about three months after demonstrations began when Yanukovych spurned a long-anticipated E.U. association deal in favor of closer ties with Russia. The opposition continues to demand a new government headed by its leaders and sweeping reforms that put Ukraine back on its path toward greater integration with the E.U.
