Revolution of Dignity
As it was reported earlier Euromaidan demonstrations started in Kyiv after the decision of President Victor Yanukovych to suspend the preparation for signing the Association Agreement on November 21, 2013. All at once this announcement resulted in the largest protests since the last Orange Revolution in 2004.
November 21, 2013 is officially considered the date of the beginning of the Ukrainian Revolution of Dignity. Around 2,000 people gathered the same night when the decree to change geopolitical course of Ukraine and suspend preparations for signing the Association Agreement was made public.
