Tens of thousands of protesters rallied in Ukraine on Sunday in a bid to wring new concessions from President Viktor Yanukovych, buoyed by pledges of support from Europe and the United States. More than 50,000 people could be seen on Kiev's barricaded Independence Square -- that has become the epicentre of a two-month protest movement -- and thousands more were arriving.
