Heavy Riots In Kiev, Ukraine
Yesterday the capital city of The Ukraine, Kiev, exploded. Heavy fighting between protesters and the government controlled riot police resulted in the deaths of 2 protesters, hundreds injured and some amazing scenes . The protests started out as a way of the people letting their (corrupt) government know they wanted closer ties with Europe and not Russia, a path chosen by the government. Instead of listening to the people on the streets the government quickly made up some new anti-protesting laws and rushed them through parliament, which the political opposition says paves the way for a police state. The result are these images.
