#ukraine the #maidan revolution by those who survived it

they were wise enough to organize elections and to have a real democracy a year later

meanwhile many of these #maidan defense units have now been fighting and dying in the donbass against the Russian invaders

but Ukraine has found back its unity, its history and its future

not all the people in the documentary are as 'nice' and democratic as we would like them to be - but in the face of death and violence you don't ask the political opinions of the person fighting next to you - that is for afterwards (and the elections have reduced the influence of the rightwing radicals to minimalist proportions)

even if Putin wanted it otherwise and hoped they would win a bigger margin or a majority because of his incursions and permanent bombardements
