KIEV, Ukraine, Dec. 3 (UPI) -- Thousands of protesters in Kiev Saturday demanded the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych and early presidential elections.

RIA Novosti reported several thousand protesters from Ukraine's regions turned out in downtown Kiev for the protest.

The former cleanup workers have been protesting pension cuts.
