After more than two months of large-scale demonstrations in Kiev, Ukraine, the uprising had its deadliest day Tuesday, with up to 25 people reported killed, including police officers, protesters and at least one journalist. An additional estimated 241 people were injured.
The protests were initially sparked by President Viktor Yanukovych’s decision to turn away from a trade deal with the European Union and towards Russia instead. They have grown more violent as authorities have cracked down on new laws limiting the right to protest in Ukraine.
