Ukraine marks five years since bloody Maidan uprising

Hundreds of Ukrainians mark five years since the Maidan revolution, which ousted a pro-Moscow government but sparked war in the east of the country and led to Russia annexing Crimea. President Petro Poroshenko and senior members of the government laid candles at a temporary memorial for the “Heavenly Hundred”, as those who died during the protests are known. Other members of the public brought flowers to the emotional event.
