Always ready to deliver truthful and meaningful photo stories from the war zone in Donbas, let the reader see what's going on in Ukraine and around the world through my eyes without missing a single detail.

Rallies in support of President Viktor Yanukovych at Mariinskiy Park, which had gone on for many days, seem to be over. On the morning of Dec. 23, the protesters dismantled the stage and the camp.

Meanwhile, the anti-government protest on Independence Square is in its 33nd day. A day after the mass rally took place on Dec. 22, life in the EuroMaidan protesters' camp goes on uneventfully. Protesters cook food, distribute donated warm clothes among themselves and spend time talking to each other, sitting near fire barrels.
