Hundreds gathered on Independence Square in Kyiv on Nov. 21 to mark the third anniversary of Ukraine’s EuroMaidan Revolution.

Activists and supporters of Ukrainian nationalist groups declared that they would bring tires and burn them on Independence Square, and then march to the office of Viktor Medvedchuk (one of Ukraine’s representatives in the Minsk negotiating group, widely seen as pro-Kremlin) to attack it.

After they went to the nearby European Square to collect the tires, police officers managed to prevent most of the activists from bringing any tires to Independence Square. However, some activists did manage to bring a few, and set them on fire in front of the independence monument on the square.

The crowd then marched to the office of Medvedchuk, located in an alley off Lva Tolostoho Square, to attack it, but apparently they only smashed a beauty salon on the first floor of the building.

After that the nationalists broke into a branch of Sberbank of Russia on Lva Tolostoho Square, and smashed everything inside it until police managed to restore order.
