Documented: Unrest in the Ukraine

Billowing black smoke, leaping flames, charred wreckage, explosions–it looks like a war zone. And it certainly is a battle. One that has become deadly in recent days. Violent protests have been spreading out from the Ukrainian capital of Kiev since November, when the government pulled out of a treaty with the European Union. The situation has since been aggravated by new legislation restricting political dissent. The following two albums document some of the unrest occurring in the region:

The photos above were captured by Ilya Varlamov, who said:

There is a surreal atmosphere here. On one hand the exhaustion of the people is readily apparent. On the other, there is a certain euphoria and expectation of victory.

Protestors throw rocks and Molotov cocktails, and they burn tires to keep a thick smoke screen between themselves and the authorities. Police respond with their own Molotov cocktails, flashbang grenades, tear gas, and water cannons.

The following album shows more scenes from Kiev:
