Ukrainian Village

People leave flowers and mourn at a makeshift memorial in homage to anti-government protesters killed in the past weeks' clashes with riot police on Kiev's Independence Square on February 24, 2014. Ukraine issued an arrest warrant Monday for ousted president Viktor Yanukovych over the 'mass murder' of protesters and appealed for $35 billion in Western aid to pull the crisis-hit country from the brink of economic collapse. The dramatic announcements by the ex-Soviet nation's new Western-leaning team -- approved by parliament over a chaotic weekend that saw the pro-Russian leader go into hiding -- came as a top EU envoy arrived in Kiev to buttress its sudden tilt away from Moscow.
