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”.
