Two helicopters - level 3
Grainy CCTV footage purports to show Ukrainian President Yanukovich leaving his suburban residence in a helicopter.
The footage, which cannot be independently verified, shows people packing up and leaving the presidential palace outside Kiev, just hours before Yanukovich was ousted by parliament.
Once the trucks have been loaded and driven away, a group of people can be seen arriving with bags and boxes of belongings to board onto two waiting helicopters.
It’s not clear where Yanukovich is at the moment. However, the country’s parliament, exercising power since mass protests forced him to flee, named its new speaker as acting head of state on Sunday.
Difficult words: CCTV footage (security camera video), purport (appears), suburban (just outside the city), oust (make somebody officially leave a position), exercise (use), flee (leave quickly), acting head (leader until the people pick a new leader).
