Ukraine: more than 100 people have been killed since the beginning of the conflict; approximately 300 are considered missing
The Ukrainian revolution that began as a peaceful rally in support of the country's European integration (the EuroMaidan), and later transformed into massive anti-government protests,resulted in an armed clash between protesters and police officers. The police purposefully opened fire on participants of the protests. The exact number of casualties is still to be determined.
The mass rallies in support of Ukraine's European integration began on 21 November 2013. After the violent dispersal of activists on Independence Square on the night of 31 November, 2013, the mass anti-government protests began. The fundamental unwillingness of the country's leadership to accept the demands of protesters led to a gradual escalation of the conflict.
