TOPSHOTS Russian opposition activists hold protest in support of the revolution in Ukraine, burning car tires in the center of St Petersburg, and in front of tThe church of Our Savior on the Spilled Blood, early on February 23, 2014.

Nevertheless, Saturday's developments appeared to swing the balance of power in Ukraine in the opposition's favour and seemingly superseded the pact Yanukovych had signed just a day earlier to end the country's bloodiest conflict since its independence in 1991.
