KIEV: Ukraine's ousted president Viktor Yanukovych remains in the country as authorities continue the hunt for him over the killing of protesters last week, prosecutors said Wednesday. 

Yanukovych vanished over the weekend after fleeing his luxurious country estate outside Kiev as an avalanche of rapid-fire changes saw his grip on power collapse following the slaughter of scores of demonstrators. 

"We have information indicating Yanukovych is still in Ukraine," interim deputy general prosecutor Mykola Golomcha told reporters in Kiev.

No further details were given about the whereabouts of the fugitive leader -- who was last seen in a televised interview Saturday after he flew into eastern Ukraine. 

Prosecutors also said that an international warrant had been issued for Yanukovych, but it remained unclear whether authorities had made a formal demand to Interpol. 

Yanukovych -- along with other former high-ranking officials -- is wanted by Kiev over the "mass murder" of protesters, and parliament voted Tuesday to appeal to the International Criminal Court in the Hague to prosecute him.
