German Chancellor Angela Merkel on Wednesday underlined her support for Ukraine's pro-European protesters, saying their demands must be heard.

In a speech to parliament, Merkel hailed the "courageous demonstrations" against the Ukrainian government.

"They are fighting for the same values that guide the European Union and that is why they must be listened to," she said.
