Ukrainians Saturday somberly marked the second anniversary of the bloody revolution that ousted Russian-backed president Viktor Yanukovych, as a fresh political crisis left many disillusioned with the current leadership.President Petro Poroshenko and his wife came early in the morning to light icon lamps at a memorial cross for the more than 100 people killed in the pro-European Union protests.U.S. Vice President Joe Biden praised the "brave Ukrainians" who took part in the protests as he held talks overnight separately with Poroshenko and Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk.Biden spoke to the leaders following a failed attempt Tuesday by the parliament to oust the government over its perceived failure to tackle corruption.Reforms are stalling while a growing number of corruption scandals to many seems only too reminiscent of the rule of Yanukovych and his cronies.
