Storyline

Maidan Massacre is an investigative documentary into the shootings which occurred on February 20th, 2014, when nearly 50 people were gunned down on the streets of Kiev's Independence square. The massacre was the result of a massive three month long protest against the former Government of Viktor Yanukovich and his decision to reject a trade deal with the EU. Although no thorough investigation had been conducted, the blame was immediately placed on the officers who served under Yanukovich. This program investigates the scene of the crime, interviewing those who were there when the shootings occurred, and seeks to answer the questions as to who really was shooting that day on Kiev's Independence square - a place known to the people of Ukraine, as Maidan.

The Ukranian Dallas?
30 March 2018 | by HitomiHueara97See all my reviews

Very well-crafted documentary about one of the most peculiar and important turning-point day of recent history. For some reason it remembered me about Kennedy's assassination: in Kiev, as in Dallas, we have a shooter, or maybe more than one. As in Dallas, we have many people interviewed and many point of views. It's panicking to see how many bad reviews there are about this documentary, simply describing it as "Russian propaganda", while the director decided to interview both the Berkut police and the rioters, and "full of lies", even if the documentary provides a lot of videos in order to cover what it says and it doesn't claim any definitive truth.
