Protesters clash with riot police in Ukraine

KIEV, Ukraine (NEWSCHANNEL 3) - Early Monday morning thousands of demonstrators in Kiev, Ukraine were squaring off with riot police over a new measure putting tighter controls on political rallies.

Police say protesters set fire to a bus used to transport riot police.

It's the latest round of tensions after Ukraine's government changed its stance last November on an agreement with the European Union in favor of closer ties with neighboring Russia.

The White House is blaming the increased tensions on its government and says it's considering sanctions if the government uses violence.
