Sweet dreams are made of this
Ukraine state TV in revolt

Journalists on Ukraine's state-owned channel - which had previously given unswerving support to Prime Minister Viktor Yanukovych - have joined the opposition, saying they have had enough of "telling the government's lies."

Journalists on another strongly pro-government TV station have also promised an end to the bias in their reporting.

A correspondent on the state channel, UT1, announced live on the evening bulletin that the entire news team was going to join the protests in Independence Square. She said their message to the protesters was: "We are not lying anymore."
