Ukraine’s fugitive president wanted for ‘mass murder’

Ousted Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich was on the run on Monday, possibly somewhere in southern Ukraine, hunted by police for what opposition leaders call “mass murder” linked to the revolt against his rule. Scores have been killed in the uprising.
There were scattered reports Monday that volunteer militias have been forming in Yanukovich-supporting parts of the country, stoking fears that violence between pro-Western and pro-Russian Ukrainians could erupt. The U.S. State Department issued a warning on travel to the country, saying there were reports of sporadic violence against travelers and journalists.
Yanukovich, 63, now accompanied only by his chief aide and a handful of security guards, was thought to have been in the pro-Russian stronghold of Crimea on Sunday after zig-zagging furtively around eastern Ukraine in a bid to find a safe haven. He and his entourage shut down their communications systems, Ukraine’s interim interior minister said, in a move to avoid being tracked.
