Anti-government protesters clash with riot police in Kiev on February 18, 2014. Ukrainian riot police approached Kiev's main opposition camp on February 18 after at least seven people were killed in the bloodiest day of clashes in nearly three months of protests. Opposition leader Vitali Klitschko called on women and children to quit the encampment on Kiev's iconic Independence Square over fears of a possible police assault. But some 25,000 protestors remained on the square after the expiry of a 6:00pm (16.00 GMT) ultimatum from security forces demanding calm be restored.
