Photographer Giles Clarke shared some notes from the field with Resource Magazine after his recent trip to Kiev, Ukraine, to cover anti-government protests:
“The on-going anti-Ukrainian protests- Some images of the men who were on duty at the EuroSquare barricades over the past couple of days. This is the front-line where protestors stand and wait- a line of defiance against the government corruption. The cops with shields and batons are only 100 yards away behind a no mans land of blackened sheet ice. They rotate the watch in 2 (not 8!) hour shifts and keep warm around burning oil drums when not watching the line of cops. Earlier in the month, 2 people were shot and killed here by sniper fire with scores more injured in running battles in the neighboring streets.”
