Pictures: What A Day In Ukraine! President Yanukovych Flees Kiev, Protesters Take Over Presidential Palace!!

February 22, 2014

The fate of the Ukrainian people has been on the mind of the world this week.  But there was also a truth on display.  Strongmen are in trouble when protesters stop fearing bullets.

And then came Saturday.

Former Prime Minister Yulia V. Tymoshenko was released from prison, and Parliament found President Viktor F. Yanukovych unable to fulfill his duties and set an election for May 25 after he fled the capital.

Protesters took over the Presidential Palace, and seized Yanukovych’s residence where they opened it up for tours.  They even played golf on his fairway.
