2014 Ukraine Riots 1 of 16

The 2014 riots in Ukraine began as a large series of peaceful protests called Euromaidan. These protests aimed to end government corruption and human right violations, but things quickly got out of hand. The protests evolved into riots and full-on revolution, with as many as 800,000 protestors showing up at one time. Over the course of the riots, nearly 100 people were killed and at least 700 were injured.
