    Escalation of conflict


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     Freelance photographer MaiaKiev captured these images of protesters in Kiev Tuesday as violence erupted in the city, leaving several dead. The protesters are shown in her images clutching everything from a cross to placards to what appears to be a gun. Violence has continued Thursday in a situation she described as "heartbreaking". "I had been part of these protests since November and until last month it was peaceful, almost like a festival," she said. "Now it's heartbreaking. I saw people [this week] carried out of the square with gushing wounds, I saw the hatred." For the latest on the protests read CNN's story here.

    On Feb 18th a peaceful march of protesters to the building of Parliament was stopped by riot police. Within couple hours it has escalated into armed conflict. Before the day ended 9 people were killed, hundreds were injured. As of now the conflict continues and the number of victims grows.
