Further information

The deaths caused outrage in the west and were arguably the tipping point that led President Yanukovitch to flee the country. It was initially taken for granted that the shots were fired by government forces. However, subsequent analysis of the type of bullets/firearms used, together with the direction and trajectories of the shots proves beyond reasonable doubt that both protestors and police were killed by the same weapons and that the shots came from building controlled by the opposition.
