EuroMaidan Revolution remembered: EuroMaidan on the eve of the Nov. 28-29, 2013 Vilnius Summit

Prev 01 11 Next

Editor's Note: This is an occasional series from the newspaper's archives of the Kyiv Post's coverage of the EuroMaidan Revolution, the three-month uprising that ended with President Viktor Yanukovych fleeing power on Feb. 21-22, 2014.

With public protests growing over the Ukrainian government’s about-face on signing the Association Agreement with the European Union on Nov. 21, 2013, large rallies started to be held on Kyiv’s Maidan Nezalezhnosti, or Independence Square.

The protesters, mainly students, were supported by visitors from the parliaments of Poland and Lithuania. The protesters, determined but good-humored, had little idea of the savage violence they would face on the square from the security forces of the regime of then-President Viktor Yanukovych just days later. On Nov. 27, 2013, there was little sign that the protests would escalate into a mass public movement that would topple Yanukovych some three months later.
