Ukraine threatened to impose a state of emergency today after demonstrators occupied the justice ministry and protests demanding the president's resignation spread despite a power-sharing offer.

Opposition leaders said an olive branch proposal from President Viktor Yanukovych was not enough to end the ex-Soviet country's worst crisis since independence and demanded snap elections this year.

The protests began more than two months ago over Yanukovych's rejection of a pact with the European Union under Russian pressure.

But they have now turned into an all-out bid to oust him from power.
