We are not extremists!
- Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer
On Feb 18, 19th thousands of people rushed to Maidan in spite of danger and threats of riot police. Ukrainian government says it's terrorists and extremists who come to Maidan, but in fact these protests united people of different ages, from different social and educational background. Everybody who comes wants to serve the cause - some break out stones from the ground, some are serving food, others are bringing tires and wood. Instead of running in fear, people gather in face of danger to support and protect each other!
