It was on Nov. 21, 2013, when Ukrainians started to hold the first protest actions in response to the decision of the then government to stop the country's European integration and freeze the preparations for the signing of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement. The change in the legislatively enshrined priorities of Ukraine's foreign policy aroused the indignation of Ukrainians.

This is what made the Ukrainians launch peaceful rallies in Kyiv, later followed by protest actions throughout the entire territory of Ukraine. A total of 106 protesters were killed and more than 2,000 were wounded as the criminal authority led by Viktor Yanukovych resorted to a crackdown on the Ukrainians using security and police officers. The Euromaidan events were followed by Russia's cynical annexation of Crimea and military hostilities in Donbas resulting in thousands of killed, wounded and displaced persons.
