Ukraine May Impose Martial Law

Ukraine's outgoing Kuchma executive may declare martial law in an attempt to end the massive rallies and protests springing from the electoral fraud of last weekend, the Ukrainian news service Ukrayinska Pravda announced:

Yushchenko warns of a possible attempt to break up the rallies and declare emergency law about 20:00.

Victor Yushchenko has warned that the authorities are considering declaring emergency law and moving to break up the rallies in Kiev.

"Already for two days there has been talk about introducing emergency law which would allow them to break up this demonstration and raze the tent city around 20:00" - Yushchenko said at the rally in Kiev's Independence Square.

According to my friend and colleague King Banaian, this may already have come to pass. He's posted links to Tulip Girl on the ground there, and Yuschenko's news service reports further that police have gathered for unknown reasons at the local sports stadium.

This may quickly escalate into a Tiananmen Square-type confrontation. Let's hope cooler heads prevail, but it looks like Yanukovych and Kuchma have determined that their position has become untenable outside the use of force.
