Weapons of EuroMaidan in Kiev

Riots continue in Kiev for the second month now. During this time protesters learned not only how to build defense walls but also fight with Berkut (Бе́ркут) (special units of the Ukrainian militia) directly. If the main weapons were bricks and stones before, now they are using lasers to blind militia, shower them with Molotov cocktails. Some exotic medieval weapons also occur: axes, bows and other copies of an ancient weapons. They even built the catapult. But it didn’t last long, riot police demolished it, at the first night of its existence. Protesters use helmets, wooden masks, respirators, gas masks as an armor. In order to protect their legs, parts of sleeping bags and wooden boards are used.

Situation got out of control in the last couple of days. Video from Kiev reminds more of a war scene than a protest. In order to scatter protesters riot police uses: flash grenades, gas grenades, couple types of aerosol gas, shotguns with rubber bullets.

Here are the photos of attacks and how people defend Euromaidan.
