Killings, torture, kidnappings, arrests. This is Ukraine in late 2013 – early 2014. Violations of human rights aren’t limited to the protesters. Journalists and medics are also relentlessly persecuted and abused by the riot police. Ukrainian lawyers collect evidence of the violations to take cases to the European Court of Human Rights, once the legal avenues in Ukraine have been exhausted.
