On February 22, many Ukrainians took part in public events to commemorate the first anniversary of the massacre on Maidan square, in which nearly one hundred protestors were killed and led to the overthrow of former President Viktor Yanukovych.

The largest of these gatherings was held in Kyiv, while smaller peace marches and public actions occurred elsewhere, including Ukraine’s second-largest city of Kharkiv.

The Security Service of Ukraine claims to have evidence which proves that Russia trained and supplied the perpetrators. Although it is the most deadly and publicized terrorist attack in Ukraine to date, the Kharkiv bombing is just the latest in a string of attacks throughout the country, including smaller bombings in Kharkiv, Odessa, and even Kyiv.
