Former Ukraine President Yanukovych Accused Of Treason

Former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych was accused of treason and conspiring with Russia after he fled from Kyiv in 2014, following widespread protests and their violent suppression. Speaking by video link from Russia, the former president denied giving the order to fire at the demonstrators, and said that radical provocateurs were to blame. The shootings in February 2014 came after three months of protests against his decision to block an association agreement with the European Union. (AP)
