This is from the BBC: US is considering sanctions against Ukraine for how they're handling protesters who want nothing to do with Russia.

Earlier, US Secretary of State John Kerry expressed "disgust" at the decision by Ukraine's authorities to "meet the peaceful protest... with riot police, bulldozers, and batons, rather than with respect for democratic rights and human dignity".

And while the protesters would rather be in the EU than anywhere near Russia's economic influence, I have to wonder where it goes from here since it's clear Ukranian President Viktor Yanukovych is intimidated by Putin.
