The Early Days of the Demonstrations in Kiev
The Orange Revolution was a unique event in the recent history of Ukraine. Many expats in Ukraine — especially those in Kiev — got caught up in it as well and participated in demonstrations despite U.S. State Department warnings. Orange Revolution souvenirs are still being sold today. The pictures below capture the feeling of the early days of the "revolution," when emotions were at a high and Ukrainians felt a sense of liberation, civic will, and unity for the first time in many years.
