Ukraine's most popular band, Okean Elzy, kicked off its concert on EuroMaidan for possibly hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians on Dec. 14 with a dedication to innocent victims of police brutality. 

The event brought together all former members of the band, including Pavlo Gudimov, Yuriy Khustochka and Dmytro Shurov. The band performed with number of well-known songs, including "Vstavai, moya myla!" (Rise, my dear!), "Maizhe vesna" (Almost Spring),  "Tam, de nas nema" (There, where we are not), "Kvitka" (Flower) and others. 

Vakarchuk called on the activists to stand all night long.
