The Washington Times on December 8, 2013, reported that hundreds of thousands of protesters took to the streets to denounce the government’s move away from Europe and toward Russia, The Associated Press reported. Excerpts below:

“Glory to Ukraine!” some demonstrators shouted while others took turns beating the statue of the Russian communist revolutionary.

The 11-foot statue was erected in 1946 just after the end of World War II, NPR reported.

Opposition groups in the country are calling for a million people to rally against government plans to forge stronger ties with Russia.
