KIEV, Ukraine — Vice President Biden abruptly canceled a wreath-laying ceremony Friday at a memorial marking Ukraine’s pro-Western revolution after angry crowd gathered to demand justice for those killed in the unrest.
Biden was in Kiev, the Ukrainian capital, on the first anniversary of the “Maidan” revolution that brought hundreds of thousands of protesters into the streets for three months before President Viktor Yanukovich was driven from office on Feb. 21.
The change of plans — forced when Biden’s Secret Service escort decided that the scene was too risky — underscored the turbulence in Ukraine after a year of political upheavals and a separatist rebellion by factions allied with Moscow.
