People look at a golden toilet installed by activists on a pedestal where a statue of Lenin used to stand before it was ripped down by protesters, in Kiev on February 3, 2014. Among the accusations against Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych that have fueled the demonstrations is the charge that he had gold toilets installed at his sprawling country estate near Kiev. Earlier, Ukrainian activists targeted the Kiev offices of Germany's Deutsche Bank, claiming that it was handling corruption money from President Viktor Yanukovych's inner circle.
