Feb 21 (Reuters) - Ukrainian police shot back when protesters opened fire on officers between the main protest square in Kiev and the parliament building, a police statement said.

The statement did not say whether there had been any casualties. It said the police had sent in armed reinforcements to enable the officers to retreat when they came under fire.

The protesters did not immediately comment on the police statement.
