Crimean Journalist Released After FSB Questioning

A Ukrainian citizen,  Evelina Nefertari, has spent the last year reconstructing the events of the Euromaidan revolution, combining all the various amateur and professional videos to show, in real time, the events in Maidan Square as they unfolded. Kyiv Post reports:

The resulting two-hour video documentary pieces together the events that took place on Feb. 20 when at least 49 activists were killed in Kyiv. The video material captured by nine cameras covers events in chronological order in all the hot spots of the protests – on Maidan Nezalezhnosti and Instytutska Street. It popped up on YouTube on the anniversary day and has collected close to 300,000 views to date.

"It was very difficult to do it – both morally and technically,” Nefertari explains, adding that she had not had any experience of video editing. She tried it for the first time when she attempted to reconstruct the last hours of Bohdan Solchanyk, also a Lviv native who died on that day. That's how the project was born...

The videos show protesters being shot and killed on Instytutska Street by snipers behind police lines at 9:01 – 9:16 , and 9:20 – 10:38. The timeline also incorporates an [intercepted] radio communication between snipers of the Security Service of Ukraine's Alfa special unit unit starting on the 11th minute. Some videos also show doctors trying to give first aid to the wounded and protesters behind the barricades ready for new clashes.
