Drawing inspiration from Ukraine's 2013-14 revolt, Venezuela's young protesters are donning Viking-like shields in battles with security forces and eagerly watching a film on the Kiev uprising.

Venezuela’s shield-bearing protesters

A demonstrator holding a rudimentary shield poses for a picture before a rally against Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro's government in Caracas, Venezuela, May 27, 2017. He said: "I protest because I am a young man and this government has not given me anything. I want to live well and this government has not allowed me to do so, I want to eat well, I want to dress well, but with the money I earn at work, I cannot afford it." CARLOS GARCIA RAWLINS/REUTERS
