The party of Ukraine's jailed opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko said on Monday that riot police had stormed its headquarters in the capital Kiev, although the police issued a quick denial. Batkivshchyna (Fatherland) party spokeswoman Marina Soroka wrote on her Facebook account that the Berkut riot police had "occupied the central headquarters" of the party and were "breaking down doors". Batkivshchyna is one of the three major opposition parties in Ukraine now spearheading mass demonstrations demanding the immediate dismissal of the government over its rejection of a historic EU pact.
