BACKSTAGE OF A REVOLUTION
On the night of 21 November 2013 a protest erupted in Kiev as a response to a fallen European agreement. It soon became a national protest to oust a corrupt government with its painful relationship with Russia. People of all classes, ages and genders came to Maidan to support the revolution, building a stronghold of the people. What happened during the days of the uprising goes beyond the violent clashes. The outcome of the revolution, the overturning of the country's political scenario, has nothing to do with the fighting or the victory of the military on the ground. Most of those who took up arms against the government, young students, businessmen, workers, or even the elderly, were not fit for any fight against a regular army. The seeds of this change grew backstage, with people supporting the revolution together on a daily basis, for months, behind the front line in many different ways. What happened in Maidan is deeply rooted in human nature. And in its faith in the future.
