What Remained of the Revolution—Photos from Ukraine, May 2014

Monday, February 23rd, 2015


February 2014 marked the escalation of Ukraine’s Euromaidan Revolution—police using live ammunition killed scores and injured hundreds of protestors on 20 February, and former Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych fled to Russia a few days later. These photographs, taken by the Journal’s Senior Editor Lydia Tomkiw, illustrate what remained from the revolution in the Maidan, the central square of Kyiv, as well as in Lviv, in May 2014, a few months after the height of the protests.
