Mr Yanukovych's rejection of an EU-Ukraine trade pact triggered the protests that toppled him.

2. I wouldn't call fleeing to save his own skin "removal."

That country is on its ass financially. When it was revealed in what luxury Yanukovich was living, especially since it was clear he did it with public funds, and not because he was the Ukraine's Bill Gates, I think running for his life was the only sensible thing for him to do if he wanted to keep it.

I'm sure he WOULD have been removed if he had stuck around, but I'm not sure in how many pieces.
