KIEV — Several thousand pro-European Ukrainians demonstrated in the capital for President Viktor Yanukovych's resignation over the weekend. One man even played the piano in front of Ukranian riot police on Kiev’s Independence Square.

The movement, known now as the “Euro Revolution,” claims Yanukovych is “selling” Ukraine to Russia, after the government refused to sign an association agreement with the EU in November.

A group of protesters symbolically smashed the city’s statue of Russian revolutionary leader Vladimir Lenin Sunday, before taking its dismembered parts as trophies to Independence Square.
