Police in the Ukrainian capital Kiev have launched a fresh attack on anti-government protesters as the death toll in renewed clashes has climbed to 26.

The new attempt to uproot the protest stronghold came as President Yanukovych blamed opposition leaders for the worst violence in months of unrest.

After failed overnight talks, he urged them to distance themselves from radical forces.

The EU says it expects to agree sanctions on those behind "repression"

Russia, however, has accused opposition protesters of trying to engineer a "violent takeover of power".
