Ukraine’s opposition will hold talks tomorrow with government officials after massive street demonstrations against President Viktor Yanukovych’s rejection of a European Union trade pact paralyzed the capital city.

Twice in his career, Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych has faced crowds in the hundreds of thousands calling for him to step aside. The first time was in 2004, when he attempted to steal the presidential elections. The second was this weekend, after he decided not to sign a trade agreement with the European Union.
