1 Year On, Kiev Bloodbath Remembered
Crowds in Moscow and Kiev gathered to mark last year's deadly protests, but their goals were very different.By Elizabeth Hagedorn | February 21, 2015
A year has passed since the nightmare that unfolded on the streets of Kiev. It's being remembered in very different ways in Russia and Ukraine.
Under the slogan, "We won't forget, we won't forgive!” thousands marched in Moscow Saturday to mark last year's protests and condemn the so-called “coup” that led to the overthrow of the country’s former pro-Russian President Viktor Yanukovych. (Video via RT, BBC)
That rally comes one day after a more somber crowd rallied in Kiev's central Independence Square to commemorate last year’s pro-democracy protests and remember those who died in the violence.
