Former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko (l.) embraces a supporter during a rally in Kiev (Kyiv) on Tuesday. Several hundred members of the pro-Yanukovich Regions Party formed a barrier to the entrance to the parliament building while police kept back about 3,000 supporters of former Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko from drawing near. Tensions were high after riots in parliament on April 27, in which smoke bombs were thrown and brawls broke out between Yanukovich and opposition deputies over ratification of an agreement to extend the Russian Navy's stay in Ukraine.
