Wednesday is Ukraine‘s Day of National Unity, but the country has never felt so divided.

At least three people have died in Kiev, the first casualties of a protest movement that has rumbled on for two months before bursting dramatically into violence over the weekend.

Two protesters were shot dead during clashes with police, who attempted to take back control of the city centre. Prosecutors confirmed earlier claims by the protest leaders that the pair had been shot with live ammunition.

Those with cell phones who were near the clashes received the following text message from their cellular service providers: Dear subscriber, you are registered as a participant in a mass disturbance.
