@Euromaidan twitter released an updated map of the popular uprising underway in Ukraine. According to multiple ukrainian sources several regional authorities are blocked by protesters, stormed or seized. In some regions local administrations pledged support for the protest and denounced the central authority embodied by president Yanukovich. At present ten of twenty four regional administrations are under protesters' control. No casualties were reported.

Three regional legislative bodies, namely Ivano-Frankivsk, Ternopil and Poltava have banned the Party of Regions and the Communist party — two parties that comprise the ruling coalition. President Yanukovich and Prime Minister Azarov are currently at the head of Party of Regions, which forms a parliamentary majority with its loyal ally — the Communist party.

In a surprising twist Ukrainian football ultras emerged as an orderly force guarding peaceful protesters against the brutality of police and plainclothes thugs locally known as 'titushki'. Several regional football fan clubs voiced their open support for the protest on their websites and social network groups.
