    Ukraine´s president voted out Ukraine´s president voted out Presentation Transcript

    • Ukraine's President Voted Out, Flees Kiev Protesters celebrate as they ride atop a truck in central Kiev, on February 22, 2014. Ukraine's parliament voted to hold early presidential elections on May 25, passing a resolution stating that Viktor Yanukovych had failed to properly fulfill his duties as president. The resolution said that Yanukovych "is removing himself (from power) because he is not fulfilling his obligations, and (that parliament) is setting elections for May 25." (AP Photo/Darko Bandic)
    • Earlier today, Ukraine's parliament voted to remove President Viktor Yanukovych from office, after months of anti-government protest. Yanukovich, decrying the actions as a "coup", fled Kiev, as the heads of Ukraine's security forces appeared in parliament to declare they would not take part in any conflict with the people. Legislators also freed Yanukovich's biggest rival, former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, who had been imprisoned since 2011 for what is widely believed to be politically motivated reasons. After the President fled, security forces also abandoned his official residence outside Kiev, and hundreds of protesters and locals walked right in, roaming the lavish estate and its grounds. Parliament also slated new presidential elections for May 25. Collected here are photos from Ukraine over the past 24 hours, as citizens celebrate, mourn, and plan for a new future. 22.02.2014
