Chapter 63 is one of 128 Chapters of Paul Hodge's incredible "ground breaking" November, 2014 High Definition (HD) Video Book, "2014 SOLO AROUND WORLD IN 25 DAYS, SEPT 5 - SEPT 30, 2014”. Paul’s HD video chronicles his Tuesday, September 16, 2014 coverage of the demonstrations which took place in front of the Ukrainian Parliament Building in Kiev’s Constitution Square while the Ukrainian Parliament was voting on ratifying the European Union-Ukraine Association Agreement. The Agreement would have the effect of bringing the Ukraine closer to Europe while, at the same time, distancing the Ukraine from the Russian orbit of influence. This large Euromaidan demonstration was to show the Ukrainian Parliament members that there was strong public support for the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement which, at the end of the day, was ratified by the Ukrainian Parliament.
Paul’s risky adventure to Kiev, Ukraine was primarily to cover the September 16, 2014 Ukraine Parliament ratification of the EU-Ukraine Association Agreement and to assess the aftermath ramifications of the Ukraine’s historic February 18-22, 2014 Ukraine “Euromaidan” Revolution.
The “Euromaidan” movement ’s creation was originally motivated by the pro-Russian government’s 2013 termination of the proposed Association Agreement between the European Union and the Ukraine. Since then, the movement has morphed into a movement to terminate the pro-Russian government, end the dysfunctional historical relationship with Russia, end public corruption and reform Ukrainian society by guaranteeing its citizens basic human/civil rights.
After protests/unrest began in November, 2013, Kiev’s Independence Square became the main site where the final violent confrontations of the February 18-22, 2014 Ukraine “Euromaidan” Revolution took place. The revolution resulted in the Ukraine’s pro-Russian government being overthrown and the establishment of a more democratic, transparent pro-European Ukrainian government. During the violent clashes between Euromaidan supporters and the police, a 100+ people were killed and 1,000+ were injured by police gun fire/brutality in Independence Square where there are now shrines/monuments to the brave Ukrainians who gave their lives.
