The revolution taking place in Ukraine was in the full swing when I visited in April 2014. Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) in the centre of Kiev had been occupied by militants, tents pitched all over and the aftermath of the riots still remained.
Walking through the square you could feel the revolution taking place around you.
The smell of smoke, the feeling of tension and an atmosphere that cannot be described send your senses into overdrive, knowing that the situation there could turn extremely nasty at any second. Boxes of Molotov cocktails and petrol bombs are stacked up and ready to be used at a moment’s notice.
Despite the unbelievable scenes, life for the Ukrainian people goes on. It is clear changes will take place in Ukraine, but exactly what those changes will be remains to be seen.
