The View from Lviv
- hhanks, CNN iReport producer
It is critical to note that the security situation in the city is also utterly different from the situation in Kyiv. There have been no deaths, no near deaths, no conflicts between the police and the public whatsoever. Not only are the police not stopping peaceful public protest in all its varieties, but there is essentially no police presence on the streets at all. The single noteworthy act of violence in the city in the last two, an attack on a local police precinct, occurred as the police stood by watching it happen. Within twelve hours, the public had cleaned the sidewalk and and began mending the building.
The following photographs show what I have seen in the streets of Lviv on February 19th and 20th. I offer them in several parts.
The first shows a march through the city streets.
The second shows before and after pictures of the cleanup around the police precinct.
The third and fourth show the situation in the main gathering location on Prosp. Svobody.
The fifth shows something of daily life in the city.
