The anti-terror operation (ATO) by the government of Ukraine against Russian armed mercenaries and Russia-supported terrorists in Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

My photographs from several nights spent at the pro-European protest tent village EuroMaidan at the Independence Square in Ukraine’s capitol Kyiv in December 2013.
The tent village still exists there as a reminder of the protest rally in November – February 2014 when more than hundred people were murdered and hundreds wounded in clashes with police.
One day with a photo camera in downtown Kyiv, Ukraine at the pro-EU #EuroMaidan tent village.
Despite snow and cold weather thousands of Ukrainians remain on the central Independence Square (Maidan) in the capitol expressing their will to more close relations with the EU and protesting against the riot police brutality.
