DIY weapons of the Ukrainian Revolution

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. These photos show the incredible DIY weapons that were fought with, photographed by Tom Jamieson. This collection features everything from clubs with nails, wooden blocks chained to sticks, makeshift axes, and bats.
