The main ideological impulse, indeed, a driver for public protest on Kyiv´s Maidan Nezalezhnosti (Independence Square) in late 2013 – early 2014 was the idea that Ukraine should be part of Europe, as opposed to the Russia-led Customs Union. Preceded by the Revolution on Granite of 1990 and the Orange Revolution of 2004, it rightfully became to be known as the Revolution of Dignity and Euro-Maidan.

“Revolution of Dignity”, “The will to change everything!”, etc.

For her fate,
For honor and will,
For the people!”
