Ukrainian riot police and demonstrators remain in a tense stand-off in central Kiev, one day after anti-government protests erupted into violence.
Clashes broke out on Sunday after weeks of mainly peaceful action against Kiev's decision to spurn a political agreement with the EU, and then to toughen anti-protest laws.
President Viktor Yanukovych says he is now ready to negotiate with pro-EU protesters and opposition leaders.
