Ukraine president heckled at tribute to Kiev protesters as Biden visits | The Guardian - Nov. 21, 2014 |

The Ukrainian president has been heckled by relatives of 100 protesters killed in Kiev's Euromaidan revolution at a memorial ceremony for the victims.

The relatives, frustrated by Petro Poroshenko's failure to bring officials of the previous government to justice, shouted: "Who is a hero for you, Poroshenko?", "Where are their killers?" and "Down with Poroshenko!" They also attacked him for failing to keep a promise to confer the title of national hero on the victims, which would bring financial benefits to their families.

The US vice-president, Joe Biden cancelled a planned visit to the area off Kiev's Independence Square, apparently for security reasons.

Poroshenko and Biden had been due to lay a wreath together at the memorial but instead met nearby and shook hands before the US vice president headed for talks with the Washington's man PM Arseniy Yatsenyuk.

It was the first real public display of anger against Poroshenko, who was elected in May after the pro-Moscow Viktor Yanukovich fled the country.
