Is Ukraine's president backing off? Overnight, it looked like the opposite was happening. Police moved in, cleared side streets, and pointed water hoses at demonstrators, all in a bid to break up pro-EU protests that are now in their 15th day.

Will they be back, or is Ukraine's embattled president charting a different course?
