The truce declared by Ukraine's President Viktor Yanukovich and the main opposition leaders didn't stick long. Fighting broke out between thousands of protesters and riot police on Kiev's Independence Square only hours after it's declaration. At least 35 people reported dead, hundreds injured – that's the current result of the political crisis in Ukraine. Another day of violence in Kiev in this photo gallery by ITAR-TASS
