On the night of February 22, 2014, Euromaidan activists seized the government quarter, abandoned by law enforcement officers, and put forward a number of new demands, in particular, the immediate resignation of President V. Yanukovych.
Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine V. Rybak (Party of Regions) submitted a letter of resignation due to illness and the need for treatment (according to unofficial data, the reason for his resignation was fear for his safety). A. Turchynov (VO "Batkivshchyna") was elected as the new speaker of the Ukrainian parliament.
The first vice-speaker of the Verkhovna Rada, a member of the Communist Party of Ukraine (CPU) I. Kaletnik also wrote resignations. It is indicative that the entire subsequent period was marked by mass intimidation by supporters of Euromaidan of deputies of the Verkhovna Rada from the ruling Party of Regions and the Communist Party of Ukraine.
The central office and the editorial office of the party newspaper of the Communist Party of Ukraine in Kyiv, the offices of the Kyiv city committee of the Communist Party of Ukraine, the Pechersk and Svyatoshinsky district committees of the Communist Party of Ukraine in Kyiv were destroyed. The CPU, while continuing to be a legal parliamentary party, was actually forced to cease to exist. Because of fears for their lives, most of the deputies from the Communist Party faction in the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine moved to Crimea or Russia. The few deputies who remained in parliament, as a sign of protest against lawlessness in the country, did not take part in the voting.
This concludes our chronology of EuroMaidan. The Nazis seized power. Later, the "Right Sector" will impose a tribute on all the shops and all businessmen in Kyiv. The police have ceased to exist and do not perform their functions. Crazy thugs, the so-called "Heroes of Ukraine", walk around Kyiv in masks with weapons, break into apartments, beat up civilians. They decided to build a pigsty on the Maidan, and this is not a joke
At the time of writing these lines, it is the end of July. Riots and complete impunity for crime in the capital of the "European country" remains the norm. We did not begin to keep a chronology of these "everydays". After EuroMaidan, the attention of the whole world became riveted to the events in the Crimea, and then in the South-East of Ukraine. And we are transported through the annals of the Ukrainian events away from the kneeled Kyiv to the South-East:
