(MENAFN - Arab Times) UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was "shocked and gravely concerned" about the escalation of violence in the Ukrainian capital, Kiev, which has resulted in 21 more deaths and more injuries, his press office said in a statement.

Reiterating that the use of violence is "unacceptable" by government forces and the opposition, Ban "urged both sides to redouble efforts to build on recent positive measures, including an amnesty for those detained as a result of the protests and the vacating of Government buildings by protesters." He called for the "immediate renewal of genuine dialogue leading to rapid results," stressing that preventing further instability and bloodshed is a "paramount priority, and all sides must aim to return Ukraine to the path of prosperity and democracy as quickly as possible,'' reported the Kuwaiti news agency KUNA

Ukrainians took to the streets late last year to protest at President Viktor Yanukovych walking away from an EU trade deal, accusing him of being a Russian puppet

Their protests became bigger by the day and now demand new elections and constitutional reforms to transfer more power from the presidency to the parliament.
