Ukrainians carried torches and portraits in memory of people who lost their lives during winter protests near Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine, on Tuesday.

Self-defense members of the Euromaidan movement later doused supporters of far-right radical groups with fire extinguishers to prevent them from partaking in the procession.
