Militant anti-government activists in Ukraine on Saturday threatened to storm the president's palace and shatter a fragile peace deal to end the ex-Soviet country's bloodiest crisis since independence.Embattled President Viktor Yanukovych signed a deal Friday with the opposition paving the way for early elections and forming a unity government while granting amnesty for protesters detained during three days of unrest that claimed nearly 100 lives. Russia -- which has promised a $15-billion bailout to its economically struggling former satellite following Yanukovych's decision to drop the EU deal -- has also expressed reservations about Friday's agreement.Russian President Vladimir Putin's representative pointedly skipped the signing of the deal.The Ukrainian president's office issued no statement on Yanukovych's whereabouts.
