Visuals of Ukrainian protests mock government

Participants of anti-government protests in Ukraine have explored visuals to mock key politicians, including President Yanukovych, Prime Minister Azarov and Minister of Internal Affairs Zaharchenko #євромайдан #euromaidan.

Since the first days of protests people draw posters and slogans in support of European perspectives for Ukraine. Their attitude was rather positive. Protesters called government to sign EU Association Agreement in Vilnius on Nov 28-29. On the other hand, some posters attacked Putin, whose pressure on Ukraine had been witnessed for months. Since the government of Ukraine had denounced signature of the agreement on Nov 29, protesters have changed their tone accusing the government of failure and “stealing Ukraine’s dream of Europe”.

After the police has stormed unarmed protestors in Kyiv in the early hours of Saturday, Nov 30, anger has widely spread among millions of Ukrainian citizens. The tone of posters grew from peaceful to active, calling to bring to justice the key politicians, responsible for violence against citizens. Protesters have created visuals, publishing them online and asking people to print them out and carry them to the streets.

User mrpetrruccia has published three key posters. Each of them calls: “Remember! His hands are in blood”

A poster from another user shows a screenshot from official site of President of Ukraine. It depicts a news in which President of Ukraine appeals to Ukrainian people, but instead of Yanukovych’s photo, a photo of Hitler posted:
