Andreas Umland: “I would recommend you to come to Kyiv”
To non-Ukrainian friends following events in Ukraine: I would recommend you to come to Kyiv before it is too late, and the revolution is over. You need to see this city of resolute self-defense, effective self-organization, (sym)pathetic barricades, civic resistance, freedom spirit, direct democracy, spontaneous cooperation, improvised discipline, and phenomenal friendliness. The sight, mood and atmosphere of the Euromaidan are a unique experience. You have probably never seen and may never again see anything like this!
