    One of the leading organizers of the street protests in Kiev who vanished for eight days says he was abducted, tortured, and then left to die in the cold. Police confirm the activist, Dmytro Bulatov, was bruised and had an ear injury. Bulatov says he was hung up by his wrists, repeatedly beaten, crucified, and had his ear cut off. He says his kidnappers are unknown, but they had Russian accents.
