Euromaidan

This card comes from Marina. 🙂 I was really surprised of how fast the Ukrainians printed postcards about these recent events.

Euromaidan is a wave of demonstrations and civil unrest in Ukraine, which began on the night of 21 November 2013 with public protests demanding closer European integration. The scope of the protests expanded, with many calls for the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych and his government. Many protesters joined because of the violent dispersal of protesters on 30 November and “a will to change life in Ukraine”. By 25 January 2014, the protests had been fueled by the perception of “widespread government corruption”, “abuse of power”, and “violation of human rights in Ukraine”. And that was only the beginning… Let’s all pray for a good outcome for Ukraine! 🙂
