Bloodiest Days of EuroMaidan Revolution Remembered in Ukraine

The eyes and ears of the world watched as protesters on Kyiv’s Maidan Square pushed closer toward government buildings. Some holding wooden shields huddled together behind anything that would give them cover.

Then shots began to ring and protesters fell limp to the ground spilling their blood on the streets. This was the beginning of the end for then president Yanukovych and it would also be the bloodiest of Ukraine’s EuroMaidan Revolution with around 100 people losing their lives to violence in just a few days.

I remember exactly where I was when the final days of the EuroMaidan Revolution played out on the streets of Kyiv just 2 years ago.  As the country struggled for freedom and the government forces began shooting on unarmed protesters, Christina and I were thousands of miles away in a small farming town in Southern Idaho.

We had no internet in the small house where we were staying but from one corner in the room I could get just a faint signal from the library’s wi-fi just down the street.  Christina and I sat uncomfortably watching live as these historic moments unfolded.

Today I want to share with you a few posts that I wrote during those tragic days of Ukraine’s history.

This weekend is proving to be one of the most historical on record for Ukraine. After a week of terrible bloodshed there are some positive signs. Just moments ago the Ukrainian parliament impeached president Yanukovych after he fled to an undisclosed location and abandoned his post.  This along with many other developments are very significant. The question of …


This isn’t Victory Yet! A Call for Reconciliation in Ukraine

Last week revolution happened in Ukraine. The demands of the opposition were met when former president Victor Yanukovych fled on Friday leaving his post and giving the opposition parties a chance to gain power.
