Pro Ukrainian Integration Protest

Ukrainian protesters gathered Sunday afternoon in front of the Ukrainian United Nations Mission in midtown Manhattan. The protesters are calling for the resignation of Ukrainian President Victor Yanukovich after failing to sign a crucial trade agreement with the European Union. Pressure and sanction threats from Moscow are believed to be the key reasons Yanukovich chose not to move forward with the deal. Though this protest lasted only an hour, thousands of protesters in Kiev have been holding mass anti-government demonstrations in the streets and taking over government buildings.
