The decision of the Ukrainian president brought down the reputation of the government in the country, and created loss of faith in the government among people; and his opponents grabbed the opportunity with both hands and cashed it quickly, which caused the mass protests against his decision, a political movement known as the ‘Euromaidan’, and opponents with the huge protesting crowd ousted him on 22th February of 2014. Because of high protesting in ‘Kiev’, the capital of Ukraine, Victor Yanukovych had to leave the capital city of Ukraine. Protesters didn’t quiet it then and there; instead they rounded up the Russophone eastern and southern regions of Ukraine, where the president Victor Yanukovych had a great support.
