A group of MEPs, including Poland's Saryusz-Wolski and Germany's Brok, as well as former Georgian leader Saakashvili, have flown to Kiev to join pro-EU protests. Ukraine's PM Friday branded protesters "Nazis and criminals," while a police chief said he plans to "act decisively, harshly" unless people stop occupying official buildings.
