KIEV (Reuters) - Jailed Ukrainian opposition leader Yulia Tymoshenko has launched a hunger strike to push President Viktor Yanukovich to sign a landmark trade agreement with the European Union, her lawyer said on Monday night.

"As a sign of unity with you I declare an unlimited hunger strike with the demand to Yanukovich to sign the association agreement," said Tymoshenko in a message to thousands of pro-Europe demonstrators rallying in Kiev which was read out by her defense lawyer, Serhiy Vlasenko.
