Protesters Storm Ukrainian House

Ukrainian protesters took over a building in Kyiv early on January 26 after opposition leaders spoke to the crowds in Independence Square, vowing to continue their struggle. The protesters had allowed several hundred police to leave the building, known as Ukrainian House, before moving in and occupying it.
