Euromaidan was a wave of demonstrations and civil unrest in Ukraine, beginning on November 21, 2013. People from all Ukrainian cities and towns came to Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) to protest against the refusal of the Ukrainian government to sign the Ukraine-European Union Association Agreement. The protest gradually turned into a revolution, resulting in overthrow of President Viktor Yanukovych.
This revolution played an important role in self-determination of Ukrainians. They demonstrated their desire for freedom and unwillingness to tolerate infringement of their rights and dignity. The anniversary of the revolution became a public holiday in Ukraine. Observation of this public holiday will keep the importance of these events for the future generation.Remind me with Google Calendar
