Ukraine President Ousted

"Abandoned by his own guards and reviled across the Ukrainian capital but still determined to recover his shredded authority, President Viktor F. Yanukovych fled Kiev on Saturday to denounce what he called a violent coup, as his official residence, his vast, colonnaded office complex and other once impregnable centers of power fell without a fight to throngs of joyous citizens stunned by their triumph," the New York Times reports.

Wall Street Journal: "Yanukovych vowed to remain in power, even as his political allies abandoned him in droves."

Washington Post: "Just a few hours after parliament voted to oust the president, his arch political enemy, Yulia Tymoshenko, a key figure in Ukraine's 2004 Orange Revolution, was freed from prison."
