Famous journalist Vitaly Portnikov wrote on Facebook during the night attack on the Euromaidan rally:

"Maidan stands. Berkut [riot police] retreated from the Kiev city hall. There are Belarusian national flags near the stage. Our neighbours have been living in a similar nightmare for almost 20 years. I wrote much about it, but it's only now that I realize how it is."
