Photos: Klitschko Brothers Continue Political Battle in Kiev

WBC heavyweight champion, and also the leader of Ukrainian opposition party UDAR - Vitali Klitschko, and his younger brother Wladimir Klitschko, who holds the WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF titles, stand at a barricade set by pro-European protesters in Kiev. Ukrainian police forced protesters who have blockaded the government headquarters in central Kiev for a week to move away from the building. A column of special troops moved in on the protestors to force them to leave, upon which opposition MPs urged the demonstrators to move down the street to Independence Square, the main protest venue. The protest is aimed at forcing President Viktor Yanukovych to resign after he sparked fury by rejecting an EU pact under Kremlin pressure.

Things are getting real ugly in Ukrainian politics. I just hope Vitali doesn´t end up in prison as Janukovich likes to play dirty.. Vitali should focus fully on politics, HW division has nothing of interest for him but taking down…

[QUOTE=FAt tEDDY;14014678]Wlad is hugging people there.[/QUOTE] That's how world champions are supposed to act. That said, being the champ, I wouldn't trust people in public like that without good security.
