The perpetrators of crimes against the Maidan has not yet been punished despite an impressive evidence base revealing a lot of wounds inflicted by law enforcers on protesters.

This is stated in an article (in Ukrainian) at Censor.NET. Statistical data and photo evidence from exclusive sources were obtained during the forensic examination of 304 Maidan protesters traumatized mostly during Feb. 18-20, 2014.

Medical experts have recorded a wide range of injuries: sores, bruises, wounds inflicted by batons, elastic bullets, and traumatic buckshot (non-lethal), as well as firearms bullets and buckshot, including 12-mm metal Blondeau bullets. Thermal and chemical burns, concussion, loss of vision and hearing were caused by the explosion of stun grenades. In addition, the nature, scope, and mainly localization of injuries allowed assuming that stun grenades were deliberately and artificially equipped with additional striking elements resulting in numerous wounds of predominantly lower extremities.
