The Russian and Ukrainian flags fly, next to the statue of Vladimir Ilyich Lenin, in Donetsk, eastern Ukraine, on Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014. The Ukrainian parliament on Tuesday delayed the formation of a new government, reflecting political tensions and economic challenges following the ouster of the Russia-backed president.

KIEV, Ukraine — A former presidential aide despised by protesters has been shot and wounded, his spokesman said Tuesday, raising fears of retaliation as Ukraine charts a new tumultuous political course.

Andriy Klyuyev, who was President Viktor Yanukovych's chief of staff until Sunday, was wounded by gunfire Monday and hospitalized, his spokesman, Artem Petrenko, said.

The Ukrainian parliament Tuesday, meanwhile, delayed the formation of a new government, reflecting political tensions and economic challenges after Yanukovych went into hiding.

Parliament speaker Oleksandr Turchinov, who was named Ukraine's interim leader after Yanukovych fled the capital, said that a new government should be in place by Thursday, instead of Tuesday, as he had earlier indicated.
