KIEV — Furious about President Viktor Yanukovych’s decision to scrap political and trade accords with Europe, Mykola Nomonko shut his auto parts store in the western city of Staryi Sambir, piled his five employees into a minibus, and drove to the capital, Kiev, to protest. It was Sunday, Nov. 24. Nearly two weeks later, he is still here.
Like many of the thousands of demonstrators who are occupying Independence Square and several public buildings, Nomonko said he would not leave until Yanukovych was ousted. “He has to resign,” Nomonko said. “People became so angry that they will stand here to the end — to the happy end of Yanukovych’s career. We wait for the political death of Viktor Yanukovych.” Full story for BostonGlobe.com subscribers.
