On Thursday, January 23rd, 2014, a protestor stands in front of burning barricades, which provide a boundary between protestors and officers in Kiev, Ukraine. The thick smoke from the burning tires covered the city of Kiev as the fire engulfed buildings and other parts of the town.

Though the injury rate was fairly low for this protest, there was still quite a lot of damage. Many protestors pelted officers with rocks and even went as far as setting their buses on fire. The city itself saw the most damage. A peaceful protest was urged, but many did not listen.
