the beginnings of the civil war in Ukraine

January until April 2014 – During the Maidan protest which led to the ousting of Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich in February 2014 and an ongoing geopolitical stand off between NATO and Russia, thousands of people occupied the Independence Square in Kiev for several months. More than 100 people lost their lives in Kiev. In April 2014 Pro Russian seperatists have overthrown the regional governments in the Eastern cities of Lugansk or Donetsk which led to the ongoing civil war.

[UPDATE:] More than 10.000 people have died in the conflict.
