About the book
Remembering the Revolution
Two years after the EuroMaidan Revolution protests, the Kyiv Post looks back on the dramatic events of the winter of 2013-2014, when a nation rose up and drove President Viktor Yanukovych from power.
This e-book gives a summary of the main events of the revolution, interspersed with the reflections of those who witnessed these historic events for themselves, and is illustrated with images from the Kyiv Post’s award-winning photographers.
The book is available on Amazon in an electronic format.

about the book and the Kyiv Post
This unique book was written by a dozen journalists associated with the Kyiv Post, Ukraine’s English-language newspaper, now in its 23rd year.
The book contains more than 50 photos, selected from several thousand images from the Kyiv Post's EuroMaidan Archive, as well as 13 essays from Kyiv Post's journalists, editors and contributors.
Close to epicenter
The Kyiv Post covered the 93-day revolution from its unique vantage point only a few blocks from Maidan Nezalezhnosti, Kyiv’s central square and the epicenter of protests. Our staff writers and photographers maintained a near-constant presence there during the winter of 2014.
Missouri Honor Medal
The Kyiv Post’s EuroMaidan and war coverage won us the prestigious 2014 Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism - awarded by the Missouri School of Journalism - the world’s oldest journalism school established in 1908.
Some of the Kyiv Post's journalists who contributed to "Witness to Revolution" were a part of the Yanukovych Leaks project. On Feb. 22, 2014, volunteer divers discovered nearly 200 folders of documents in a lake at the Mezhyhyria residence of the former president; part of an effort by Yanukovych and his entourage to cover up their crimes before escaping the compound and subsequently Ukraine. Kyiv Post's journalists helped investigators study them and made available to the public.

The book leads the reader through first-hand accounts of the EuroMaidan protests, beginning from Nov. 21, 2013, when the first 1,000-plus demonstrators gathered on Maidan Nezalezhnosti in central Kyiv, and their bravery lasted through the end of Feb. 2014, leading to Yanukovych's downfall. He fled Ukraine for Russia. Subsequently, the Kremlin invaded the Crimean peninsula.
