In November 2013 the Ukrainian goverment decided not to sign an association agreement with the European Union. This decision led to massive protests throughout the country. Kiev's Independence Square (also known as Maidan Nezalezhnosti) was at the center of the protests. The originally peaceful demonstrations against pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych turned into violence in February. Many people have been killed in street fighting. Interior Minister Vitaliy Zakharchenko said that the Ukrainian police force has been given combat weapons for use in the civil unrest in Kiev.

51673085

Euromaidan, or Maidan movement, was a wave of protests that escalated into deadly civil unrest in Kiev, Ukraine, which lasted several months after it started at the end of November 2013. The movement, a reaction to the refusal of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych to sign an EU-Ukraine Association Agreement, called for Yanukovych and his cabinet’s resignation. The Ukrainian government were accused of corruption and of hindering Ukraine’s integration with the EU. Yanukovych was eventually ousted following several ultimatums made by the Maidan activists. Yanukovych fled to Russia in February 2014 after a violent police crackdown on the protesters left at least 100 people dead.
