An estimated 70,000 pro-Western Ukrainians thronged the heart of Kiev on Sunday vowing never to give up their drive to oust President Viktor Yanukovych for his alliance with old master Russia. 

Wearing blue and yellow ribbons - the colours of both Ukraine and the European Union - the crowd received a religious blessing before opposition leaders took to a podium on Independence Square.
