Protests herald unstable year for Ukraine

Thousands took to Kiev's streets on January 1 for the largest demonstration in recent weeks.

    Government opponents in Ukraine are calling for a general strike after the end of the Orthodox Christmas holiday next week.

    For six weeks, the opposition has protested against President Victor Yanukovych’s failure to sign a trade agreement with the European Union.

    The ongoing standoff with the government could mean an uncertain 2014 for Ukraine.
