    Yanukovych lost control over 7 cities, 5 are blocked by protesters

    Riots spread from Ukrainian capital to nearly half of the country. Over the past two days local protesters managed to get control over local administrations in Lviv, Ivano-Frankivsk, Ternopil, Chernivtsi, Lutsk, Rivne and Khmelnytsky. At least three governors resigned. Protesters are building barricades, group of one hundred people is blocking the international highway Lviv — Krakivets. Activists burn car tires and refuse to leave it, claiming that they are supporting protesters on the Hrushevskogo Street in Kyiv.

    At the same time local administrations in Uzhhorod, Zhitomir, Vinnitsa, Chernigiv and Sumy are paralised by protesters. The situation is constantly changing. Activists and radical youth stormed the governor's office in Cherkassy (city in the center of Ukraine) yesterday but were superseded by police. More than 58 people were arrested. Several thousand of people picketed local police and prosecutor offices but have not been able to agree with officials and release detainees.

    Football fans (ultras) of Dynamo (Kyiv), Dnipro (Dnipropetrovsk), Metallist (Kharkiv), Zorya (Lugansk), Shakhtar (Donetsk), Tavriya (Simferopol) and Chernomorets (Odessa) showed their support of Euromaidan and decided to protect protesters in their native cities from "titushki" (pro-government armed provocateurs).
