Photo and video evidence of police using torture against protesters are being leaked on the internet.
Editor's Note: Anti-government EuroMaidan demonstrations began in Ukraine on Nov. 21, triggered by President Viktor Yanukovych's decision to abandon closer ties with the European Union in favor of Russia, which in December offered him a $15 billion bailout and 33 percent discount on imported natural gas. The demonstrations turned deadly on Jan. 22, when five protesters were killed, including four from bullet wounds, during a police assault on the crowd. More than 300 were reportedly injured. The tense standoff remains on Jan. 23 on Hrushevskoho Street near Dynamo Stadium.
