Former Boxer Steps Up As Kiev Mayor, Spars With Remaining Activists

Friday, June 06, 2014

Former world heavyweight boxing champ Vitaly Klitchko is now set to become mayor of Kiev. In his first major move, Klitchko is asking activists in Independence Square to pack up their tents and allow the square to return to normal. Some activists are resisting, warning that one presidential election doesn't guarantee the success of their revolution โ€” or do justice to the martyrs who were killed there.
