Protestors in Kiev Want Second Orange Revolution
More protests are expected in the Ukrainian capital Kiev on Monday, a day after over 100,000 people rallied against the government's move to delay an association deal with the EU under pressure from Russia.
The protest is said to be the largest since the 2004 Orange Revolution, which overturned a rigged presidential poll.
Protestors now say they want to see a second Orange Revolution, because they feel betrayed by the government.
Police fired tear gas as protesters tried to break through a cordon around government buildings.
A pro-government rally a few miles away attracted about 10,000 people.
Ukraine made the decision on the EU deal last week, saying it could not afford to break ties with Moscow. Russia is trying to bring Kiev into its own customs union.
Several rallies in Kiev and other cities have been held over the last few days, but Sunday's has been the largest so far.
