KIEV, February 27. /ITAR-TASS/. A total of 838 people have turned to Kiev’s medical institutions for assistance since the start of the latest wave of riots on February 18, the Ukrainian Health Ministry reported Thursday.
The ministry said 558 of them had been hospitalized. The death toll remained the same, at 82 people, it said.
Ukraine has seen President Viktor Yanukovych deposed in the latest wave of mass anti-government protests. The country’s parliament, the Verkhovna Rada, then appointed an interim head of state and set early presidential elections for May 25.
Yanukovich’s current whereabouts are unknown. He said in a statement obtained by Itar-Tass Thursday that he still considers himself Ukraine’s legitimate leader and asked Russia to protect him. The request was “granted on Russian territory,” a source in the Russian authorities said.
