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.

Yanukovych Leaks

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.

Order on Amazon for only $3.99

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.
