Listener Photos From The Ukrainian Protests

In studio during our Dec. 4 hour on the massive public protests roiling Ukraine, a caller, listener Scott Jennings, let us know that his son, Mitch, had just returned from a trip to Ukraine and had some great photos he could share with us.

Mitch writes:  “We talked with a lot of people, they were really friendly, and just mad at their government. The sticker everyone was wearing, along with blue and yellow ribbons, says ‘I will not leave Maidan (Independence Square) until Yanukovych resigns!‘ and the other is ‘Kill Yanukovych,’ and was spray painted in an underground walkway.

Some of those photos are below. Thanks to Scott and Mitch for offering us the great images from Kiev!

    Great pictures! Thanks for sharing them!
    I am in Lviv, Ukraine right now, and have attended the protests there.
    Did you hear the news today? There were massive protests in Kyiv, bigger than last week’s, in fact, and the protesters toppled the statue of Lenin there.
    Is there any chance that you will do another show on Ukraine this week? Either way, great job on the last one!

    Just saw a picture on Twitter of a pro Ukraine rally by the Massachusetts State House. Thanks for the support, Boston!
