Protest action in Kiev was an 'attempt to seize power' - interim PM

KIEV (Reuters) - Ukraine's interim prime minister said on Wednesday that protests which brought violent clashes with police on Tuesday amounted to an attempted coup.

"This was not a demonstration of democracy ... It is the manipulation of people's minds and an attempt to seize power by force," Serhiy Arbuzov told a televised government meeting.
