The Ukrainian capital has been turned into a virtual war zone as tens of thousands of protesters continue to clash with police.  

Violent clashes have resumed after president Viktor Yanukovych refused to resign, offering only minor concessions to the opposition.

Huge fireballs have lit up the night sky in central Kiev, with plumes of thick black smoke rising from burning tires at giant barricades erected by protesters.

Scroll down for more images. 

Clashes have continued at the barricades, which are just yards from lines of riot police and also made up of bags of ice and scraps of furniture.

Angry demonstrators have hurled firebombs, rocks and fireworks at officers who have responded with tear gas.

A top opposition leader has said nothing short of Yanukovych’s resignation would do.

See more images below.
