KIEV: Ukraine's parliament on Friday voted to dismiss acting Interior Minister Vitaly Zakharchenko for using "violence" against protesters during the wave of street unrest.

Zakharchenko is a hated figure on Kiev's Independence Square because of several police crackdowns on anti-government protesters. His dismissal will be seen as a victory for the protest movement.
