Ukrainian president to end his sick leave
February 3 , 2014
Ukraine's president is expected to return to office after taking a short sick leave.
Viktor Yanukovych's leave was announced on Thursday and his office had mentioned that he was suffering from a respiratory illness. Some opposition leaders had, however, speculated that the move was in regards to the preparation for a state of emergency.
Protestors continue to demand his resignation and about 20,000 of them gathered in Kiev's central square on Sunday. Protests are heading into the third month.
