New video footage of the deadly shootings in central Kyiv on Feb. 20, 2014, at the height of the EuroMaidan Revolution was released by the representatives of some the victims during a court hearing on Feb. 14th.
The video, which appears to have been filmed from the Hotel Ukraine, located some 300 meters up from Maidan Nezalezhnosti, shows people wearing black uniforms firing at protesters from behind trucks parked in front of barricades.
Flashes and puffs of smoke can be seen on the video as riot police officers appear to fire on the protesters. At the same time, close-up footage shows protesters on the other side falling to the ground on Instytutska Street after being shot. At least 48 people were killed, and more than 80 were injured in the incident.
