Ukrainian Protesters End Seige of CIty Hall
nd­ing their oc­cu­pa­tion of City Hall in Kiev, Ukrain­ian pro­test­ers with­drew from the large gran­ite build­ing on Sun­day — but then quick­ly threat­ened to take it back if the au­thori­ties did not im­me­di­ate­ly ful­fill a pledge to drop all crim­i­nal charges against po­lit­i­cal ac­tivists. The de­par­ture from the build­ing in the cap­i­tal af­ter more than two months eased ten­sions — tem­po­rar­ily, at least — in the stand­off be­tween pro­test­ers and Pres­i­dent Vik­tor F. Yanukovych, who set off the coun­try’s tu­mul­tuous po­lit­i­cal cri­sis in No­vem­ber by spurn­ing a trade deal with the Eu­ro­pean Un­ion and tilt­ing Ukraine, a for­mer So­viet re­pub­lic of 46 mil­lion peo­ple, to­ward Rus­sia in­stead.

It depends, we can't do much about natural gas, all of that comes from Putin
