Ukrainian law enforcement agencies say they have no information about the whereabouts of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, who has reportedly been seen in Sevastopol, a port on Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula which is the home of Russia’s Black Sea Fleet.
After signing an agreement with the opposition to end a conflict that turned deadly, Mr Yanukovych fled the capital, Kiev, for eastern Ukraine.
He tried to fly out of the country on Saturday but was stopped by Ukraine’s border service.
Opposition politician Volodym Kurennoy said on his Facebook page that he had unconfirmed information that the president had been arrested in Crimea.
Ukrainain news portal Liga.net reported that Sevastopol residents saw Mr Yanukovych in the company of Russian marines.
Spokesmen for the Interior Ministry and Security Service in Crimea said today that they had no such information.
