Ukraine PM threatens protesters
(01-22 09:01)

Ukraine's Prime Minister Mykola Azarov warned that security forces could use force to disperse protests after two nights of clashes that left hundreds wounded.
Azarov told Russian television that if “provocateurs'' did not stop, the authorities could act under controversial new laws that essentially ban large protests in Ukraine.
His comments came as influential news site Dzerkalo Tyzhnia said that the authorities had already worked out a precise plan to regain control of the site of the intense clashes between protesters and the security forces.
Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov warned the situation in Ukraine was spiralling out of control after two months of protests over President Viktor Yanukovych's failure to sign a deal with the European Union.
Clashes raged in the centre of the Ukrainian capital until early morning Tuesday, with demonstrators flinging Molotov cocktails and stones at security forces who hit back with stun grenades, rubber bullets and tear gas.—AFP
