      US Threatens Ukraine with Sanctions Over Kiev Violence


      White House spokesman Jay Carney told a briefing Thursday that the tensions in the country were a direct result of the government failing to acknowledge the "legitimate" concerns of the Ukrainian people, after tens of thousands have demonstrated in the square over the government's new anti-protest measures since Sunday night.

      Protestors claim the move is a direct violation of their rights to freedom of expression.
