Controversial news exploded on the Internet and finally embodied into the national outcry which was later named Euromaidan (European and Maidan – square in Ukrainian).

Before Ukrainian riot police carried out inhumane orders the protesters urged Ukrainian president to sign the Association Agreement with the EU, after the bloodshed – people demanded president’s impeachment and resignation of the parliament and the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine. People protesting in their cities around the country also demand resignation of local authorities (more so in eastern Ukraine).
