February 25 a presidential election campaign has started in Ukraine. Yulia Tymoshenko has declined to take part in the presidential elections. She is leaving for Germany to continue medical treatment. Vitali Klitschko is eligible to participate in the election.

February 24 the Supreme Council of Ukraine has set free all political prisoners.

February 24 the Supreme Council of Ukraine has dismissed those judges of the Constitutional Court of Ukraine who unlawfully changed the Constitution on demand from Yanukovych in 2010. This exact change to the Constitution has provided him with dictatorial powers.

February 24 the Supreme Council of Ukraine has appointed a new Prosecutor-General, Governor of the National Bank, and Security Service of Ukraine of Ukraine. A new government is being formed.

Yanukovych is in hiding somewhere in the South of the country. A warrant has been issued for his arrest.

February 24 a delegation of State Duma of Russia has arrived in Simferopol. Russia begins to issue national passports using simplified procedures. Russia is demanding that all the terms of an agreement between Yanukovych and the opposition are adhered to. If the Supreme Council of Crimea addresses Russia with a request for reuniting, Russia will consider this issue very quickly. In the past, Russian citizenship of residents became one of the key reasons for military invasion of Georgia by the Russian army.
