An RFE/RL correspondent says Ukrainian police have used tear gas to disperse protesters outside the country's parliament. The demonstrators were protesting against legislation that would make Russian an official language in some regions alongside Ukrainian. Security forces apparently released multiple cylinders of the gas, which produced a cloud that covered dozens of protesters and the police themselves. The Interior Ministry has denied the reports.
