Both Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych and the opposition political leaders delegated representatives to peace talks that kicked off on January 20 to solve the longest and fiercest political crisis in Ukraine’s history.
The president assigned Andriy Klyuyev, head of the National Security and Defense Council, to find a solution to the national crisis as violent clashes between radical protesters and the police entered into their second day.
Throughout the day, hundreds of protesters continued to throw Molotov cocktails and cobblestones at thousands of police troops stationed on Hrushevsky Street in the center of Kyiv, where the main government building is located.
