President Signs Law Banning Anti-Government Protests

On Jan. 17, 2014, Yanukovych signed a law making it illegal to have tents in public areas and to slander government officials. The opposition said the new law was illegal and U.S. and other European countries expressed concern over the bills. Protesters defied the laws anyway leading to the first deadly clashes between police days later.
