Secretary of State John Kerry paid his respects to those killed during the unrest that led to the overthrow of the President Viktor Yanukovych during a visit to Kiev's Independence Square on Tuesday. Kerry arrived for talks with the new government amid tensions with Russia, which took control of the strategic Crimean Peninsula over the weekend. He visited the Shrine to the Fallen, one of the memorials established after snipers targeted protesters in Kiev.
