When A Barricade is Brought Down. December 10, 2013. Euromaidan, Kyiv, Ukraine.
11 December, 2014

The EuroMaidan protests were kicked off on Nov. 30, 2013 when former President Viktor Yanukovych failed to sign an association agreement with the European Union. The protest was turned into a tent camp and in December 2013 a Revolution. The centre of Kyiv was barricaded by the protesters to ward off any advancing police activity. These home-made barricades represented safety and security for many in the tent city. This video shows how the police brought down one of those barricades in central Kyiv.
