Britannica online encyclopedia, June 5, 2014 (under Ukraine: protests broke out in Kiev in November 2013 after planned association agreement with the EU is scuttled. In February 2014, protests spread to other cities in Ukraine; demonstrations gave way to rioting. On February 21, 2014 the EU brokered an agreement between Yanukovych and opposition leaders that called for early elections and the formation of an interim unity government. President Yanukovych fled the capital ahead of an impeachment vote that stripped him of his powers as president)
CIA world factbook, June 5, 2014 ("President Yanukovych's backtracking on a trade and cooperation agreement with the EU in November 2013 - in favor of closer economic ties with Russia - led to a three-month protest occupation of Kyiv's central square. The government's eventual use of force to break up the protest camp in February 2014 led to all out pitched battles, scores of deaths, international condemnation, and the president's abrupt departure to Russia. An interim government under Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov has scheduled new presidential elections for 25 May 2014.")
