With all eyes on Ukraine (and Russia) at the moment, it’s easy to forget the violence and bloodshed of the earlier Ukrainian Revolution. Protestors who filled Maidan Square to ‘battle the Ukrainian army and topple President Yanukovych’ had to fight with something, so they got crafty with their weapons.

This collection features everything from clubs with nails, wooden blocks chained to sticks, makeshift axes, and bats.
