    In a stunning reversal of fortune, Ukrainian opposition icon Yulia Tymoshenko left imprisonment Saturday and spoke to a massive, adoring crowd, while her arch-foe President Viktor Yanukovych decamped to eastern Ukraine and vowed he would remain in power.

Local protestors took to the streets to demonstrate against violence in the Ukraine.

Protestors now control the Ukrainian Capital of Kiev and have walked unchallenged into the president's official and residential buildings.

Parliament voted to oust the president and set a May election date.

The local protestors rallied outside the courthouse on Spielbusch Avenue in Downtown Toledo.

Rob Shaller said, "And we just feel that as Americans, that when there are people in the world who are yearning for the same rights that we take for granted here, that we have an obligation that we stand up and show support for those people that are desiring the same rights and liberties that we take for granted here in this country."

Natalya Schaller is local Ukrainian immigrant. "And when I saw them killing my people, when I see people that don't have guns, that don't have anything besides Ukrainian flags in their hands being shot by snipers... I just couldn't be quiet."
