Alexander Skozobtsov, a driver and former mining engineer, stands near a statue of Lenin in the suburb of Makeyevka in the eastern Ukranian city of Donetsk December 9, 2013. While the capital is convulsed by protests, the East-West tensions tugging at Ukraine are perhaps felt most in Donetsk and Lviv, two cities more than 1,000 km (600 miles) apart which are divided by history and - for some - a sense of the future. In the one city, the demonstrations against President Viktor Yanukovich are a threat to the nation. In the other, opposition to his decision to reject a deal with the European Union and turn to Moscow is a struggle for self-preservation. Picture taken December 9, 2013.
