President Viktor Yanukovych yesterday savaged the opposition for inflaming tensions in Ukraine's crisis after he unexpectedly went on sick leave with no end in sight to the turmoil.

Yanukovych turned on the "irresponsible" opposition which has refused to abandon more than two months of protests despite a string of concessions, including an amnesty for jailed demonstrators.

The street rallies first erupted when the president backed out of a key pact with the European Union in November in favour of closer ties with Moscow, but the unrest has since spiralled into an all-out uprising for the president's removal.
