Ukraine: Man killed by fire in Party of Regions’ office


The first and second floors of the two-storeyed building were on fire when rescuers arrived, reports.

Several dozen protesters threw stones and Molotov cocktails at the office of the Party of Regions in Lipskaya Street in Kiev earlier today. Maidan protesters managed to seize the first floor of the building for 20 minutes. They took away state flags and some documents from the office.

Several dozen riot policemen and people in plain clothes armed with batons and clubs attacked the protesters and made them leave the building later.
