KIEV, Ukraine (AP) - Ukraine's embattled president is calling the country's political crisis a coup and says it resembles the rise of Nazis in the 1930s.
Viktor Yanukovych also says he has no intention of resigning or leaving the country.
Hours after Yanukovych and opposition leaders signed an agreement aimed at resolving the country's turmoil on Friday, Yanukovych went to Kharkiv in eastern Ukraine, the heartland of his support.
On Saturday, he made the coup accusation in a televised statement.
