Protesters demand the continuation of the process of Ukraine’s integration with the European Union and punish the perpetrators of the bloody dispersal of peaceful protest November 30, 2013.

Last night authorities was made one more action to disperse the protesters. For this purpose, many units of special forces police and internal troops. The protesters managed to survive and this morning their numbers in the city center only increased.
