Ukrainians protest over widespread corruption

Ukraine ranks 144th out of 176 countries on Transparency International's corruption index.

    People in Ukraine are continuing to protest over the Christmas holiday period.

    There has been anger ever since the country's President backed out of a trade deal with the European Union.

    And the protesters say there is widespread corruption.
