Revolution in Kiev, Ukraine

1 Comment

My wife is from Kiev, grew up there during Soviet times, and we still have family and friends there. One of her dachia neighbors is photojournalist Dmitri Larin (Дмитрий Ларин). This guy is currently taking amazing pictures of the demonstrations against the Yanukovych government. You can subscribe to his feed on Facebook without friending him if you want to see all his pictures. They’re offering a better vision into the nature of the protests than any news reports I’m reading in English. I’ve been depending on his updates and on my wife’s translations to get an idea of what’s happening there.

Here are some examples:

Holiday tree

Downtown Square
Snow at nightMetro Station
Lenin statue
This one of the piano player is not Dmiti’s photo. I got it from the Обличчя Майдану Facebook page. They were helping to organize the million person march that occurred on  December 8th.
Music as protest
