The Ukrainian Revolution of February 2014
The Ukrainian revolution of February 2014.
Photographers pose in front of the Mezhygirya, the luxury residence of former Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych, not far from Kiev on February 24, 2014. Ukraine issued an arrest warrant on February 24 for ousted president Viktor Yanukovych over the "mass murder" of protesters and appealed for $35 billion in Western aid to pull the crisis-hit country from the brink of economic collapse. The dramatic announcements by the ex-Soviet nation's new Western-leaning team -- approved by parliament over a chaotic weekend that saw the pro-Russian leader go into hiding -- came as a top EU envoy arrived in Kiev to buttress its sudden tilt away from Moscow.
