"Just landed in NY. The Ukrainian government must follow Madiba's example & choose dialogue with its people, not force," Clinton wrote in a message posted on Twitter. 

Riot police clashed with protesters early Wednesday morning. Secretary of State John Kerry responded to the violence with a statement expressing "disgust" that the protesters were met "with riot police, bulldozers, and batons, rather than with respect for democratic rights and human dignity."
