Braving arctic temperatures and police violence, hundreds of thousands of Ukrainians are demonstrating in Kyiv's Maidan Square, fighting to keep their fragile democracy from slipping into a totalitarian dictatorship under Russia's influence, and becoming the next Belarus. This is an extremely critical moment for Ukraine as well as the EU. Ukraine is "the bread basket of Europe" and the largest European country, and must become a strong democracy. Despite living in the harsh conditions of a snow and ice-covered Maidan, Ukrainian protesters won't rest until they've overthrown their corrupt and vile president, Victor Yanukovych, and his government. His abuses of power range from cheaply buying up preserved national park land for his own private use to his friends getting away with murder, and now, repeatedly using violence against his own people. The demonstrators need our help to stay warm. Many are suffering from serious colds and bronchitis. The winter will only become harsher. All money donated will go to buying gloves, blankets, tents, food--the supplies the demonstrators need to keep up their resistance. Show them that the West hears them and that we support their uprising.
