Clashes between Ukrainian protesters and police leave several people seriously injuredin Kiev on Friday night.
Fighting erupted after a court handed out a six-year jail sentence to three men accused of attempting to detonate a Lenin statue back in 2011. Supporters of the convicted men said the trial and the verdict were a sham.
Local media said members of parliament were among those injured in the clashes.
Here are a few photos of the violent clash.
