  1. Ousted Ukrainian Leader Lambasts Protesters in First Appearance Since Fleeing

    Ex-President Viktor Yanukovych refuses to concede that he was ousted, instead saying he fled for his life. He also said he did not order anyone to shoot Kiev protesters, and accused the current leaders of “propagating violence.” He spoke at a press conference in the Russian city of Rostov-on-Don, continuing to assert that he remains Ukraine’s leader. Meanwhile, Ukraine’s general prosecutor has said he’ll ask Russia to extradite Yanukovych. But the former leader doesn’t appear very cowed.
