The Ukrainian Revolution in Photos

Ukraine has been going through many tremendous events the last few months. Peaceful protests escalated to bloody clashes between protesters and police forces resulting into around 100 people dead and many more injured. As the destiny of the situation is still unclear people of Ukraine will not let go of their righteous will. Freedom shall ultimately prevail.

Here we picked some chronological pictures of the events from Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) and surrounding streets in Kyiv, Ukraine.
