Szablon:Current Szablon:Infobox civil conflict Euromaidan[nb 1] (Szablon:Lang-uk) is a term for the wave of demonstrations and civil unrest that began on the night of 21 November 2013, when Ukrainian citizens started spontaneous protests in the capital of Kiev. On the previous day, 21 November 2013, the Ukrainian government suspended preparations for signing an Association Agreement and Deep and Comprehensive Free Trade Agreement with the European Union[4].

The protests are ongoing despite a heavy police presence, and an increasing number of university students are joining the protests[5][6][7][8]. Escalating violence in the early morning of 30 November from government forces has caused the level of protests to rise, with 350,000–1,600,000 protesters demonstrating in Kiev at the movement's peak on December 1.[9][10][11]

Background | edytuj kod

 Osobny artykuł: Ukraine–European Union relations.

On 30 March 2012[12] the European Union (EU) and Ukraine signed an Association Agreement; however, EU leaders later stated that these agreements would not be ratified unless Ukraine addressed concerns over a "stark deterioration of democracy and the rule of law", including the imprisonment of Yulia Tymoshenko and Yuriy Lutsenko in 2011 and 2012.[13][14][15][nb 2] In the months leading up to the EuroMaidan protests Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych urged the parliament to adopt laws so that Ukraine would meet the EU's criteria[17][18]. On 25 September 2013 Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine's parliament) Volodymyr Rybak stated that he was sure that his parliament would pass all the laws needed to fit the EU criteria for the Association Agreement since, except for the Communist Party of Ukraine, "The Verkhovna Rada has united around these bills"[19]. On 21 November 2013 a Ukrainian government decree suspended preparations for signing of the association agreement[20][21]. The reason given was that the previous months Ukraine had experienced "a drop in industrial production and our relations with CIS countries"[22]. The government also assured "Ukraine will resume preparing the agreement when the drop in industrial production and our relations with CIS countries are compensated by the European market"[22].

President Yanukovych did attend the 28–29 November 2013 EU summit in Vilnius (where originally it was planned that the Association Agreement would be signed on 29 November 2013[17]) but the Association Agreement was not signed[23][24]. Both Yanukovych and high level EU officials did signal that they wanted to sign the Association Agreement at a later date[25][26][27].

Comparison with the Orange Revolution | edytuj kod

The pro-European Union protests were Ukraine's largest since the Orange Revolution of 2004, which saw Yanukovych forced to resign over allegations of voting irregularities. Although couching the 2013 events in the same East-West terms as 2004, with Ukraine "a key geopolitical prize in eastern Europe" for Russia and the EU, The Moscow Times noted that Yanukovych's government was in a significantly stronger position following his election in 2010[28]. The Financial Times said the 2013 protests were "largely spontaneous, sparked by social media, and have caught Ukraine’s political opposition unprepared" compared to their well-organized predecessors[29].

According to Lviv historian Yaroslav Hrytsak the big difference between the protesters of 2004 and 2013 is the average age of the protesters: "This is a revolution of the generation that we call the contemporaries of Ukraine's independence (who were born around the time of 1991); it is more similar to the Occupy Wall Street protests or those in Istanbul demonstrations (of this year). It's a revolution of young people who are very educated, people who are active in social media, who are mobile and 90 percent of whom have university degrees, but who don't have futures."[5] According to Hrytsak: "Young Ukrainians resemble young Italians, Czech, Poles, or Germans more than they resemble Ukrainians who are 50 and older. This generation has a stronger desire for European integration and fewer regional divides than their seniors"[8]. In a poll taken in September, joining the European Union was mostly supported by young Ukrainians (52% of those aged 18 to 29), notably higher than the national average of 38% support[30].

Pro-European Union rally in Kiev, 27 November 2013 Pro-EU protests in Lviv close to the monument of Taras Shevchenko, 24 November 2013

First week of Euromaidan protests | edytuj kod

Approximately 2,000 people converged in the evening of 22 November on Kiev's Maidan Nezalezhnosti to protest the decision of the Ukrainian government to suspend the process of integration of Ukraine into the European Union[31]. Later, these protests were headed by opposition and pro-EU parties[32].

A larger rally took place on 24 November, when 100,000 to 200,000[33] people gathered on Kiev's Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square). The pro-EU demonstrators carrying Ukrainian and EU flags chanted "Ukraine is Europe" and sang the national anthem as they marched toward European Square for the rally[34]. News agencies claimed this to be the largest protest since the Orange Revolution of 2004.[35] After a small group of protesters attempted to storm the Cabinet of Ministers building, police used tear gas to disperse them.[36]

On 25 November jailed former Ukrainian Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko began a hunger strike in protest of "President Yanukovych's reluctance to sign the DCFTA"[37].

26 November 2013 statement by Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov "I affirm with full authority that the negotiating process over the Association Agreement is continuing, and the work on moving our country closer to European standards is not stopping for a single day" did not appease protesters who blockaded the government building during the cabinet session during which Azarov made the above mentioned statement[38]. The same day the city of Kiev installed a heating tent (hot tea and sandwiches were served) at Maidan Nezalezhnosti, where about 2,000 students were rallying[5]. According to Kyiv Post this was part of an "Ukrainian authorities' attempt to portray themselves as allies with the demonstrators who, in many cases, are calling for the government to resign if it doesn't sign an assocation agreement with the European Union this week"[5]. The same day it was reported that social media accounts of protesters were being hacked and disreputable messages being posted in place of rally news and commentary[5].

Thousands of Ukrainians are continuing to express support to European integration and protesting against decision of Ukrainian government to refuse signing of association with EU in Vilnius. 27 November 2013. Kyiv, Ukraine.

On 26 and 27 November 2013 Lithuanian Parliament Speaker Loreta Graužinienė and Member of Polish Parliament Marcin Święcicki spoke to EuroMaidan protesters at Maidan Nezalezhnosti[5]. Musical acts like Ruslana put on performances for demonstrators on Maidan Nezalezhnosti[39][5]. On 27 November it was reported that Kharkiv Polytechnical Institute staff allegedly checked class attendance, threatening students who did not attend in order to participate in the Kiev EuroMaidan rallies with expulsion. In other universities, administrators have forbidden students from joining pro-EU protests, posting political commentary to social media networks, and wearing Ukraine-EU ribbons[5]. According to Euronews the protesters in Kiev numbered ten thousand people, many of them students[7].

Maidan Nezalezhnosti flooded with pro-EU protesting people. 27 November 2013. Kyiv, Ukraine.

At noon of 28 November (the eighth day of protests) about 3,000 people gathered on Maidan Nezalezhnosti; no party symbols were reported, only Ukrainian flags and European Union flags.[5] The crowd would grow to 4,000 by the evening while it was again entertained by popular Ukrainian artists[40][5].

On 29 November 2013 after it became clear that Association Agreement was indeed not signed the number of protesters in Kiev went up to 10,000.[23][24][41] In Lviv protesters numbered some 20,000.[41] Like in Kiev they locked hands in a human chain, symbolically linking Ukraine to the European Union (organisers claimed that some 100 people even crossed the Ukrainian-Polish border to extend the chain to the European Union)[41]. Euronews reported that protesters in Kiev believed the rally should go on and were calling for the second Azarov Government's and President Viktor Yanukovych's resignation[42].

On the night of 30 November 2013 at 04:00, armed with batons, stun grenades, and tear gas, Berkut attacked and dispersed all protesters from Maidan Nezalezhnosti while suppressing mobile phone communications[10][43]. The attack spread not only onto the protesters but also onto other civilians in the vicinity of Maidan Nezalezhnosti, when the Berkut forces chased unarmed people several hundreds meters and continued to utilize batons[44]. 35 people were injured as a result of the militia raid, including a Reuters cameraman and a photographer[45][46]. Other protesters were detained[43]. Most of protesters were students[46]. At 09:20 Berkut besieged the St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery where approximately 50 Euromaidan activists, including the injured, found sanctuary[43][47]. Police spokeswoman Olha Bilyk justified the police raid by saying that protesters were interfering with preparations to decorate the square for the Christmas and New Year's holidays[48]. Minister of Internal Affairs Vitaliy Zakharchenko later apologized and claimed "riot police abused their power" and promised a thorough investigation[49]. Via state television he added "if there are calls for mass disturbances, then we will react to this harshly"[49].

On 30 November 2013 by 13:00 another spontaneous meeting was taking place at St. Michael Square near St. Michael's Golden-Domed Monastery as Maidan Nezalezhnosti continued to be guarded by the Berkut formations[50]. Ambassadors from some ten countries of the European Union, among which was the Ambassador of the European Union in Ukraine, Jan Tombinski, visited protesters at the meeting[50]. According to Hromadske TV, by 16:00 the meeting gathered some 5,000 people who were shouting "Won't forgive", and "Revolution"[51]. At St. Michael Square protesters started to form units of self-resistance[52]. Approximately 10,000 protesters remained in the evening of the 30th[53], with an estimated 10,000 more from Lviv travelling to Kiev on Saturday night[54].

1 December riots | edytuj kod

Estimates range that 350,000–1,600,000 attended the December 1 protests

On December 1, Kiev's District Administrative Court banned further protests in downtown Kiev at both Maidan Nezalezhnosti and European Square, as well as in front of the Presidential Administration and Interior Ministry buildings, until 7 January 2014.[55] Opposition forces planned the rally on the 1st to take place at St. Michael's Square, which is not among the banned rally locations, with a march towards Maidan Nezalezhnosti[56]. During the December 1 rally, protesters followed through and defied the ban and marched form St. Michael's Square to re-take Maidan Nezalezhnosti. Protesters broke several windows in the city council building, followed by crowds spilling out of Maidan Nezalezhnosti to the Presidential Administration building at Bankova Street and the Cabinet building (Hrushevsky Street). People chanted "Out with the thugs" and sang the Ukrainian anthem. The opposition party Batkivshchyna claimed as much as 500,000 protesters turned out for the rallies, and opposition leader Petro Poroshenko claimed 350,000 were on Maidan Nezalezhnosti. Other news agencies reported over 100,000 in Maidan Nezalezhnosti alone[57]. Other reports indicated 300,000 to 700,000 demonstrators[9].

At around 14:00, a group of protesters commandeered a bulldozer from Maidan Nezalezhnosti and attempted to pull down the fence surrounding the Presidential Administration building[58]. People threw bricks at Berkut guards. At least three people were injured outside of the presidential administration building, receiving head injuries from flying debris. AFP reporters saw security forces outside the Presidential Administration building fire dozens of stun grenades and smoke bombs at masked demonstrators who were pelting police with stones and Molotov cocktails[58]. The opposition stated that the aforementioned confrontations with police forces were organized by provocateurs and that the opposition has nothing to do with the conflict at Bankova street. They confirmed that the protests of opposition are peaceful[59]. Number of activists including People's Deputy of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko attempted to stop the tractor[60][61].

Pro-EU protests cordon off the Maidan Nezalezhnosti's streets with a makeshift barrier

Radio Stolytsia reported that Berkut riot police stopped a motorcade of protesters from heading towards the presidential mansion in MezhyhiryaSzablon:Dn, a suburb north of Kiev.[61]

The Ukrainian Interior Ministry reported that more than 300 members of the radical Bratstvo (Brotherhood) organization were involved in unlawful actions committed outside the Presidential Administration building, who acted under the direction of its leader, Dmytro Korchynsky[62].

The opposition occupied the Kiev City Council (City Hall) and the Trade Unions building. They still remain under control of the protesters[63]. At the city council building, protesters broke windows to get inside the building and occupy it. They chanted "Kiev is ours" and hung a Ukrainian flag in the window[57]. The city police warned the protesters in City Hall that they will “undertake measures” to clear the building if they do not leave it, without specifying. “The capital's police warns that in case of non-compliance with the lawful demands, the law enforcers will undertake corresponding measures to free the building from violators of law.”[61]

Secretary of the Writer's Union of Ukraine Serhiy Pantiuk took a dozen women to shelter inside the Union building. After other protesters fleeing Berkut police took refuge in the building as well, police broke in though the rear windows and started beating everyone in the building, including women, journalists, and building security. There were up to 50 people hiding inside[64].

The official websites of Ukraine's presidential administration and interior ministry that controls more than 300,000 law enforcement personnel had been down for most of the day. Local media reports claim that hackers are the cause, although no group has taken responsibility for it.[61]

At 20:00, an angry mob of thousands attacked Berkut riot units who were guarding the statue of Vladimir Lenin[61]. The crowd attacked with rocks, ladders, and other objects, while troops responded by deploying tear gas and making random attacks at the crowd. At least one Berkut member was heavily injured and the troops were forced to flee on a bus once overtaken by the crowd[65].

Graffiti inscription "Revolution" ("Революція")

The opposition announced a national strike and launched construction of a tent city on Maidan Nezalezhnosti. Writer Irena Karpa also encouraged the nation to go on general strike – to skip work, boycott Russian products and continue the protests[61]. Opposition leaders stated that Yanukovych is planning on declaring a state of emergency on December 2.[61] Klitschko denounced the attempt to storm the president's office as an effort to provoke the government into declaring a state of emergency. He called for everyone to stay on the square in a peaceful protest[66]. He later called for the president's resignation, stating "They stole the dream. If this government does not want to fulfill the will of the people, then there will be no such government, there will be no such president. There will be a new government and a new president," he said to cheering crowds[67]. Meanwhile, Svoboda leader Oleh Tyahnybok called for a national strike and in an official release called for a "social and national revolution," saying a revolution has started in Ukraine[68]. Opposition leader Yuri Lutsenko also called for a revolution to take place, saying "Our plan is clear: this is not a rally, not an action. This - is a revolution," and called to complete the revolutions which took place in 1991 and 2004[69].

Jaroslaw Kaczynski, leader of Poland's largest opposition party Law and Justice took part in the day's protests on Maidan Nezalezhnosti; together with Henryk Wujec, an adviser to Polish president Bronislaw Komorowski; and Polish European Parliament MEP Jacek Protasiewicz[70]. In his speech, Kaczynski emphasized that Ukraine's EU membership will allow Polish and Ukrainian nations to be together, and that is crucial for their future. He also confirmed his will to continue his twin brother's - late Polish president Lech Kaczynski - political legacy concentrated on the same goals[71].

The day after the riots, peaceful protests continued to take place and occupy Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kiev, with tens of thousands attending, while thousands blocked the main Cabinet buildings[77]. According to BBC correspondent David Stern "They have set up almost a military camp of sorts, and have erected a very impressive barricade around the perimeter of the demonstration"[78]. The New York Times's David M. Herszenhorn described the square as "oddly festive" and added that "Protest leaders, sensing that momentum had turned to their advantage, continued to add infrastructure to their operation, bringing in television monitors and erecting the small tent city"[79]. Elsewhere, Lviv, Ternopil and Ivano-Frankivsk announced a general strike in solidarity with the movement[80]. 1,000 Internal Troops (National Guard) were deployed to Kiev around key government buildings by the Interior Ministry. The parliament committee on statehood and self-governance recommended a vote of no-confidence in Prime Minister Mykola Azarov's government, opening a way for such a vote on 3 December. The Kiev City Council building remained occupied by protesters[81].[nb 3] The people working at Kiev City Council were still being allowed to come in and do their usual jobs.[77][nb 4]

On 3 December the Azarov Government survived the vote of no-confidence with 186 MP's supporting the motion, and all but 1 Party of Regions MP abstaining from the vote; at least 226 votes were needed[82]. However; the Communist Party of Ukraine, that had not supported this vote, stated that on 4 December they would put forward their own no confidence motion, based on the government’s management of the economy[83]. If the 186 MP's supporting the 3 December motion will support the 4 December no-confidence motion – which they have stated they will – the 4 December motion will pass with over 226 votes[83]. In his speech to parliament[nb 5], Azarov warned protesters occupying the Kyiv City State Administration that force could be used to remove them.[85] In the morning of 3 December Euronews described the situation in Kiev as "calm at the moment, however tensions have remained high"[86]. Clashes with riot police did occur outside of parliament[87]. In the afternoon, in freezing conditions, several thousand protesters rallied on Maidan Nezalezhnosti were opposition leaders gave passionate speeches[88].

President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovych called for calm in a 25 November televised interview, after skirmishes between riot police (who had fired tear gas at protesters) and demonstrators who had hurled traffic cones and rocks at security forces[38][146]. On 27 November Yanukovych stated "I applaud those who came out into the streets in support of European integration but there are also those who turned up to solve their political problems, who had flags and slogans which they will use for the 2015 presidential elections. I could see that very clearly"[147].

In his address to the Ukrainian people President Yanukovych stated that he is deeply outraged by those events that took place at night at the Independence Square on 30 November[148]. "I condemn the actions that led to violent confrontation and suffering of people[148]. I demand from the General Prosecutor urgently provide me and the Ukrainian society with results of immediate and impartial investigation for appropriate punishment", stated Yanukovych[148].

In a 2 December 2013 President of the European Commission José Manuel Barroso and President Yanukovych agreed that "a peaceful and political solution is the only way for Ukraine out of the current situation", and according to the EU Yanukovych "explicitly confirmed the intention to investigate into the use of force by the Ukrainian police and to inform the public about the results"[149]. In an interview with journalists from four TV channels he called on government and opposition to unite in investigating and identify what he called “provocateurs" "hiding behind children” and he stated “As for the people who came out to the rallies, any show of public will is always confirmed by everybody’s freedom and right to speak their mind. It doesn’t matter if it is the representatives of the government, law enforcement agencies or the participants of the rallies – all must respect the law”[150]. “I am convinced that a bad peace is better than a good war,” was also added[150].

Prime Minister Mykola Azarov contrasted the EuroMaidan protests to those of the Orange Revolution of 2004, stating his government "[knows] that such events are financed, for example. If this is carried out within a legal framework, fine," he told Russian television on 24 November. "If all this is carried out in violation of the law, then, of course, the government will not act like it did in 2004, when the technology of overthrowing the lawful government was being worked out quite simply before our very eyes. In this case, we won't fool around."[151] In a 26 November interview with Euronews, Azarov stated he was "not surprised" by the demonstrations "It was our government who drafted the agreement, and we were constantly explaining to our people why we were doing it. So it's quite natural that when we made our announcement a significant number of people took to the streets demanding that the process of European integration be continued. This active involvement of our people proves again that, in general, our policies on EU integration were correct"[152].

On his Facebook page commenting on the events of November 30, he stated that he is deeply outraged and worried what happened at night at the Independence Square[153]. "Those details from various sides that I have at the moment, do not allow a clear conclusion: Who is responsible for this provocation", Azarov said.[153] At interview to the ICTV channel the first deputy Prime Minister Serhiy Arbuzov said that Ukrainians should calm down and figure out what really happened during the forceful disperse of a peaceful protest at "Maidan"[154]. On December 1, Azarov claimed that the protesters were ignorant to the economics behind the decision to pull out of the EU Association Agreement, and that they were 'governed by myths and emotions'[155]. The next day Azarov refereed to the protests as resembling an coup d'état[156].

Police response | edytuj kod

On the evening of 25 November, demonstrators, including several members of parliament, overtook a white van which they believed Security Service of Ukraine (SBU) officers were using to eavesdrop on protest leaders' cellphones. Once overtaken, hundreds of riot police descended on the scene, triggering violence clashes during a 30-minute standoff. Demonstrators seized the belongings of the van, which included several license plates, a passport, and electronic equipment used for spying, photos of which were posted online. Kiev's Interior Ministry claimed they were recovering the van because they believed it contained an explosive device, whereas the SBU said the van was used to monitor for explosives, as well as scan for radio channels that could be used to set off a bomb in the crowd. The state intelligence agency asked the General Prosecutor's Office to open a criminal investigation and to punish the perpetrators, whereas opposition leaders countered by accusing authorities of illegal eavesdropping[183].

Police spokeswoman Olha Bilyk justified the police raid by saying that protesters were interfering with preparations to decorate the square for the Christmas and New Year's holidays[48]. Maidan 2.0, a civic organization, reported that the police units who broke up demonstrations were brought into Kiev from Perevalne and Kizil-Tashi in Crimea because the authorities were afraid that the Kiev units would not attack their own citizens[189]. Oleh Tiahnybok, leader of Svoboda, also reported that some units were bused in from Luhansk[189], and Yuri Lutsenko stated the troops were from both Luhansk and Dnipropetrovsk[190]. The police denied bussing in any special units from Crimea[189].

The chief of Kiev City militia (police) Valery Koryak expressed regret over what happened on Saturday night at the Independence Square and stated that he was ready to resign[191].

The crowd consists mostly of men."[5] Euronews spoke of many being "bussed in from the east of the country where pro-Russian sentiment is strong. They, too, carried national flags as well as those of the ruling Party of Regions."[24] Many in the crowed refused to talk to Euronews[42].

"Yanukovych has kept Azarov for the very purpose of writing off all the sins to his Cabinet and firing him at any moment. It is possible that it is going to happen now."[245]
