Ukraine Opens Criminal Case Into 'Mass Murder' of Civilians -- By Lukas Alpert, The Wall Street Journal

The Interior Ministry's acting head, Arsen Avakov, wrote on his Facebook page that Mr. Yanukovych is believed to be in Crimea, a southern region dominated by ethnic Russians that serves as home to Russia's Black Sea naval fleet.
