Italy summons Ukrainian ambassador in Rome
'Concerns' about escalating unrest in Kiev, beyond24 January, 18:26
In the western Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankivsk, activists occupied a regional government office and were reportedly storming another one in Chernivtsi. Demonstrations were triggered in November by Ukraine's last-minute decision to call off a proposed free-trade deal with the European Union. The situation escalated this week when the first of several deaths were reported in the crisis.
