A memorial to the dead I photographed in 2016.
Today is the fourth anniversary of the end of Ukraine’s Euromaidan revolution. On the 20th of February, 2014 pro-Russian snipers took to the streets and shot and killed as many civilians as they could manage.
Snipers in the same spot the memorials are now.
The revolution resulted in overthrowing the corrupt, dictatorial oligarch in charge of the country, but he fled to Russia and paved the way for Putin’s invasion shortly afterwards.
Note: I took this from the back seat of the car at lunchtime today! Parliament House is covered in scaffolding at the moment, so it doesn’t look so great (plus, the government voted to put that awful “anti-terrorist” fence up, and ruin the beautiful lawns).
I thought I took at least one better picture on the way back, but they were all too blurry to use!
With power lines!
One of our resident adolescent magpies – still with heaps of grey baby feathers – hanging out this afternoon.
Canberra’s Wednesday sunset. I didn’t take a picture until it was almost gone.
