Ukraine Crisis


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.
