Heavy Riots In Kiev, Ukraine

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.
