A reminder...

Euromaidan, literally ‘European Square’, identifies the wave of demonstrations and civil unrest in the Ukraine which began in November 2013 with public protests in Kiev, demanding closer European integration. The scope of the protests expanded, with many calls for the resignation of President Viktor Yanukovych and his government. The protests led to the 2014 Ukrainian revolution in which at least 82 people were killed, including 13 policemen, and more than 1,100 people were injured. Thwarting a people’s desire to be part of Europe should not be undertaken lightly.

Not that there’ll be blood on the streets in Britain. Nor is there anything resembling a functioning government to be toppled!
