Transcript

  • 1. Over the weekend, hundreds of thousands of people in Ukraine took to the streets to demonstrate against President Viktor Yanukovich's decision to abandon an EU integration pact, as he works to strengthen economic ties to Russia, rather than Europe. Protesters blockaded government buildings and occupied Independence Square in Kiev today, seeking to force Yanukovich from office. After harsh crackdowns last night, demonstrations continued this morning, with leaders calling for a nationwide strike. Über das Wochenende gingen hunderttausende von Menschen in der Ukraine auf die Straßen um gegen den Präsidenten Viktor Janukowitsch zu demonstrieren, der einen EUIntegrationspakt aufgeben will um die wirtschaftlichen Beziehungen zu Russland anstatt zu Europa zu stärken. Die Demonstranten blockierten Regierungsgebäude und besetzten den Platz der Unabhängigkeit in Kiew. Die Demonstranten versuchen Janukowitsch aus dem Amt zu zwingen. Nach dem harten Durchgreifen der Polizei, rufen die Demonstranten zu landesweiten Streiks auf.
  • 2. Abkommen gescheitert: Nach jahrelangen Verhandlungen hatte der ukrainische Präsident Viktor Janukowitsch einen Assoziierungspakt mit der EU platzen lassen. Agreement failed: After years of negotiations, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych had to burst an association pact with the EU.
