Sanctuary in a Monastery
On February 18, 2014, the Revolution of Dignity became a deadly event.
In anticipation of the upcoming episode and as a remembrance of this historic event, here's a video from November 30, 2013. It was the first bloody attack by security forces against the students demonstrating against the president's refusal to sign an EU agreement.
The last time the bells of the St. Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery warned Kyiv residents of danger was in 1240 when the Golden Horde was beseiging the city. In 2013, it warned them of the danger from their own government.
For all those who perished and continue to perish in Ukraine today for their right to live in a free and democratic country - Вічна їм пам'ять!
