US President Barack Obama weighed in on the Ukrainian protests, voicing support for anti-government protesters in the country.
“In Ukraine, we stand for the principle that all people have the right to express themselves freely and peacefully, and have a say in their country’s future,” Obama said in his state-of-the-nation address, RIA Novosti informed.
As also reported, the Canadian government has decided to bar "key government figures" in Ukraine from entering the country, in response to violent clashes between protesters and police in Kyiv, Ukrinform reports.
