last February for Ukraine

Anti-government protesters throw objects towards Interior Ministry officers during a rally near the building of Vekhovnaya Rada, Ukraine’s house of parliament, in Kiev February 18, 2014. Russia said on Monday it would give Ukraine a fresh cash injection of $2 billion to support its heavily indebted economy in a boost to the embattled president in Kiev, who has been forced onto the back foot by 12 weeks of unrest. Viktor Yanukovich is contending with an opposition-led street revolt after he walked away from a trade pact with the European Union in November and opted instead for forging closer economic ties with Russia, Ukraine’s former Soviet master.
