Anti-government protesters clashed violently with police in central Kiev on Tuesday, a day after Moscow moved to cement its influence over Ukraine with $2 billion in cash to shore up the former Soviet state’s heavily indebted economy. A parliamentary deputy said on Facebook that three demonstrators had been killed, and Ukrainian television said five protesters had been hurt in the clashes. Neither report could immediately be confirmed. REUTERS/Konstantin Chernichkin (UKRAINE – Tags: POLITICS CIVIL UNREST) – RTX191UO
