"Instead, top officials should be held responsible " the interior affairs minister, the prime minister and the president." "People of Ukraine, this is your moment. This is about the future of Ukraine, the future that you deserve," McCain said. "The free world is with you, the U.S. is with you, and I am with you." U.S. Senators John McCain and Chris Murphy joined the rally Sunday.
    • On Tuesday, opposition lawmakers will attempt to bring down the government in a no-confidence vote, a key demand of protesters. "I want Ukraine in the EU, and I want the bandits out of their seats in the government," said Yuriy Mazur, 19, a student who came to Kiev from the western Ukrainian city of Ivano-Frankivsk to protest. "I will stay till we oust this government." http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2013/12/15/ukraine-protests-rally/4030727/ KIEV, Ukraine " About 200,000 poured into the streets of the capital here Sunday as protests entered their fourth week amid increased pressure by the U.S. and its allies after the Ukrainian government backed away from a deal with the European Union. On Tuesday, Yanukovych said he would sign the EU deal next spring. But two days later, Ukrainian officials announced that the president would go to Moscow on Tuesday to finalize a trade deal with Russia, prompting a large turnout Sunday in the hopes of derailing the initiative.
