Violence erupted today in Kiev after months of protests, marking the single deadliest day of the conflict thus far. Riots have broken out, protestors and police are getting in violent clashes, and there are buildings being set on fire.
It’s a horrible situation, and one The Guardian chose to sum up with this pretty graphic image to be featured on its Wednesday front page.
Yes, that is a picture of a Kiev protestor set aflame. At least 21 people died today, and fires and explosions carried on into the night.
