KIEV, Ukraine - Thousands of the prime minister's supporters streamed into the Ukrainian capital Tuesday to protest the president's order to dissolve parliament and call early elections, ending a shaky political truce with his chief rival.
Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych's supporters expanded a tent camp outside the parliament, while those of President Viktor Yushchenko announced plans to set up a stage in Independence Square - echoes of the mass protests more than two years ago that helped to propel the pro-western Yushchenko to the presidency.
