U.S. Cautious on Ukraine Unrest
Unrest is spreading on the streets of Kiev as around 300,000 demonstrators verbalize their anger with Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych for not signing an association agreement that would deepen ties with the E.U. Instead, Yanukovych is moving to improve relations with Russia, which the U.S. has little to say about because of Russia's diplomatic partnership with U.S. deals involving Syria's chemical weapons and Iran's nuclear program. Secretary of State John F. Kerry even skipped a planned visit to Kiev this week because of the sheer mass of street demonstrators. It is the largest display of public anger since the 2004 Orange Revolution, when Ukraine turned away from Russian influence.
