AUSTIN -- Protesters waved Ukrainian flags and held banners in the same colors.

Demonstrations against the Ukrainian government started last November when the president refused to sign a free trade agreement with the European Union.

The crisis escalated this week. At least four people have died near the capital of Kiev.

In Austin Sunday supporters of the opposition called on President Obama and U.S. Senators John Cornyn and Ted Cruz to enforce sanctions against the Ukrainian government.
