Feb. 22 - Crowds invade Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich's country residence outside Kiev to get a glimpse of the president's luxurious surroundings. Rough Cut (no reporter narration).
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Ukrainians had a first glimpse of the grounds of the President Viktor Yanukovich's residence outside Kiev on Saturday (February 22) which was taken over by protesters and was being guarded by a self-styled defence militia. Hundreds of people entered the grounds, although not the building itself. A senior security source said the president was still in Ukraine but was unable to say whether he was in Kiev. An ally was quoted as saying he was in an eastern city. Yanukovich, who enraged much of the population by turning away from the European Union to build closer ties with Russia three months ago, made sweeping concessions in a deal brokered by European diplomats on Friday after days of violence that killed 77 people, with central Kiev resembling a war zone.
