People gathered at the Ukrainian Embassy in Yerevan and lit candles for the three victims of the violence in Kyiv, which included a young ethnic Armenian.

Similar rallies were held on January 23 in Bulgaria and Moldova.

In Bulgaria, several hundred people gathered outside the Ukrainian Embassy in Sofia holding banners and candles.

In Moldova's capital, Chisinau, a group of young people organized a flash-mob protest outside the Ukrainian Embassy, placing flowers under photos of the dead protesters.

Also on January 23, a small demonstration was held in London against Ukrainian oligarch Dmytro Firtash, who has close ties with the government.
