Clashes with police in Kyiv amid Revolution anniversary events
Clashes between police and the public have been reported in the center of Kyiv as Ukraine is marking the third anniversary of the Revolution of Dignity, also dubbed the Euromaidan.
No organized groups of protesters were seen on the Maidan at the beginning. But later, some participants in the anniversary events said they wanted to bring car tires onto the square through a cordon of police, which has resulted in clashes with police officers. Some of the participants set tires on fire near the Stele of Independence on Kyiv's Maidan Nezalezhnosti.
