Ukraine activist in hospital vows to fight on


VILNIUS, Lithuania (AP) — Ukraine opposition activist Dmytro Bulatov says he will continue to fight for democratic reforms in his country as he convalesces from injuries in a Lithuanian hospital.

In a statement issued Monday by the Vilnius University Hospital, Bulatov said he will need a few days to get back on his feet, "but they failed to break my soul. I will continue my fight, I will go forward. I will fight for democracy in Ukraine."

Bulatov went missing on Jan. 22 and resurfaced a week later, heavily bruised and with part of an ear cut off.

His condition raised fears that government supporters are trying to intimidate the opposition. Police had sought him for questioning on suspicion of organizing mass disorder, but prosecutors said he was free to leave Ukraine on Sunday.
