Demonstrations against the Ukrainian government are intensifying and expanding both in Kiev and the western part of the country.

The protesters – supported by the leaders of the U.S. administration, the European Union and NATO, who went to salute them personally – have escalated from simply protesting to using military techniques. Thus, the majority are donning helmets and many wear gas masks. In this RT video, the “peaceful protesters” can be seen using a catapult.
