The protests in Ukraine are spreading to other major cities. The capitol of Kiev has been home to major protests for two months after President Viktor Yanukovych rejected a trade deal with the European Union in favor of one with Russia.
Activists stormed into regional governor Oleh Salo’s office in Lviv and forced him to sign resignation papers.
Salo is now saying he signed it under duress and the resignation is invalid.
Another group of activists smashed their way into the governor’s office in Rivne and shouted, “Down with the gang!”
Opposition refers to the president’s government as the gang.
There are reports of riots in Zhytomyr, Vinnytsya, Khmelnytskiy, and Ivano-Frankivsk.
