We spent some time this afternoon at European square in downtown Kyiv. Guesstimating over 100,000 participants protesting the government’s cancellation of trade talks with the European Union late last week. The agreement was hopefully going to be signed at the end of this week in Lithuania.
For the most part, the demonstrations have been without incident. Although tonight there were scuffles between police and protesters … the TV news showed tear gas and clubs being used from both sides.
Thankful for peaceful demonstrations. Praying they continue with no serious incidents…they intend to demonstrate until the end of the week with the hopes to change the direction of Ukraine’s government back towards Europe and not aligning with Russia and its trade coalition.
We will see what happens.
