In Kiev, thousands of demonstrators have paused to mark the passing of a coffin belonging to one of two protesters killed on Wednesday.
In other parts of the country thousands of people are reported to have stormed government buildings as the unrest spreads.
Opposition leader Arseniy Yatsenyuk says the demonstrations will continue until several demands are met, including the call for new elections.
