Ukraine on Saturday launched a terror probe into a bid by an apparently drunk man to force an airliner flying to Turkey to land in Sochi where leaders gathered for the opening of the Winter Olympic Games.The Ukrainian investigator said the man demanded that the plane be flown to Sochi where Yanukovych was holding held crisis talks with Putin on the sidelines of the Games' opening ceremony.Lenko said the man was eventually tied up with rope by the crew after being tricked into believing that the plane's flight was being reversed toward Sochi.The suspect is expected to remain in Turkey during the course of the investigation.He faces 10 years in prison if tried and convicted in Ukraine.
