Ukraine: Frozen Stalemate?

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. But rather than pursue, and run the risk of bloody clashes unfolding before the eyes of the world, riot police withdrew. Will they be back, or is Ukraine's embattled president charting a different course?

Produced and prepared by David Boratov and Haxie Meyers-Belkin
