Knight on fire
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
This is a picture taken shortly after midnight 23.01.2014 at Hrushevsky street in Kiev. It shows a protester with a helmet and a shield, resembling a crusader in a circle of fire. The picture is taken on the “frontline” on Hrushevsky street – the burning tires separate the protester from the police. His calmness at this point struck me – people were throwing stones and Molotov cocktails all around - a warrior reflecting in the middle of chaos - perhaps symbolically looking at the ruins of the Yanukovich regime.
