The originally peaceful demonstrations against pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych turned into violence in February. Many people have been killed in street fighting. Interior Minister Vitaliy Zakharchenko said that the Ukrainian police force has been given combat weapons for use in the civil unrest in Kiev.
