In Kiev, Ukraine, hundreds of thousands of citizens have been protesting for President Viktor Yanukovich to step down after his refusal to sign a trade pact with European Union leaders under alleged pressure from Russia. According to Aljazeera:
Yanukovich’s decision to drop political and free trade agreements with the EU in favour of tighter Russian ties and a crackdown last week on protesters plunged the ex-Soviet nation into its worst political crisis since the Orange Revolution.

In the photograph above by Andrew Meakovski, we see Markiyan Matsekh playing a piano in front of riot police in charge of guarding the Presidential Administration. One of the protest organizers Oleg, says Matsekh played a variety of songs including Chopin and Queen’s ‘We are the Champions’.
The photograph has spread like wildfire online in the last 48 hours. Photographer David Singer has a great post about tracking down the original source and how the image has been improperly credited to various people and agencies.
