100 Moments of Revolution (2013-2023)

I came to the Maidan on November 21, 2013, witnessed the bloody crackdown on activists, saw what happened after the shootings of the Heavenly Hundred, and was wounded twice in clashes.

The Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity, also known as the Euromaidan Revolution, was a popular uprising in Ukraine in 2014. It began in November 2013 when Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych decided to suspend negotiations with the European Union (EU) on a proposed association agreement and instead move towards closer ties with Russia.


This decision sparked large-scale protests in the capital city of Kyiv, with demonstrators demanding Yanukovych's resignation and closer ties with the EU. The protests quickly escalated into violent clashes between demonstrators and police, resulting in several deaths and injuries.


In February 2014, after months of protests and growing international pressure, Yanukovych fled the country, and a new pro-Western government was formed. However, Russia annexed Crimea from Ukraine in March 2014, leading to ongoing conflict in eastern Ukraine. The Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity was a turning point in Ukraine's history, marking a shift towards closer ties with the West and away from Russia. The consequences of that days Ukrainian feel even today. 


I made more than 30 thousand pictures and hundreds of gigabytes of information. I photographed the Revolution of Dignity every day. During the first protest actions, I came to the Maidan on November 21, 2013, witnessed the bloody crackdown on activists, saw what happened after the shootings of the Heavenly Hundred, and was wounded twice in clashes.
