    EuroMaidan under fire

     

    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     MaiaKiev is a freelance photographer and one of the protesters who has been documenting what is happening inside Maidan. "Now people are spending night and day on barricades defending Maidan," she said.
    - Verybecoming, CNN iReport producer

    Since evening of Feb 18th peaceful EuroMaidan has turned into a battlefield. Thousands of riot police are shooting and throwing grenades from hills above Maidan into crowds of people standing on Maidan. People are determined to stand till the end. This might be our last stand! But today we have a chance to live out the words from Anthem of Ukraine: "We'll lay our bodies and souls for our freedom". When "music" accompanying singing of Anthem on barricades is whistle of bullets and explosions of grenades these words have very special and very personal meaning to singers!
