Reasons for the protests?

After the massive protests against the government’s rejection against the European Union in favor of an alliance with the former Russian oppressors, Kiev officials announced new repressive laws limiting the people’s right to protest. These urban battles are the people’s reaction to those laws.

Here is a video depicting some of the action. Fast forward to the three-minute mark to see the fireworks guns:

The mass protests in the capital of Kiev erupted after Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych spurned a pact with the European Union in favor of close ties with Russia, which offered him a $15 billion bailout. (AP)
