Videos: Ukraine protests get violent

An attempt to assault the Administration of the President

Ukraine protesters use a bulldozer against police

Published on Dec 2, 2013

Ukraine’s crisis is getting so serious that protesters used a bulldozer against police
Protests in Ukraine have been worsening, with thousands in the capital of Kiev calling for President Viktor Yanukovych to step down over his decision to reject a deal for closer ties with the European Union. Photos show protesters clashing violently with riot police. But this video drives home just how serious the crisis is getting.

On Sunday, protesters outside the president’s office in Kiev tried to break the line of riot police guarding the building by charging them with a front-end loader, a piece of construction equipment that is colloquially (if not quite accurately) referred to as a bulldozer. It’s not clear how they got the vehicle to the front lines of the protests. No one was hurt in the incident, reportedly because other protesters convinced the driver to back off. A short video, released by the government’s interior ministry, captured the vehicle twice pushing right into the line of police before pulling back.
