Central Kiev erupted in battles, smoke, grenades and gunfire on Thursday morning as bands of young male protesters drove riot police lines back from Independence Square and took control over a much larger swath of territory.
Shortly before 9am volleys of smoke and stun grenades as well as what sounded like automatic gunfire rang through Kiev as police initially sought to stem the offensive. Youths armed with axes, knives, truncheons and corrugated iron shields advanced on the police on a bridge behind the square that had been set alight.
The common riot police lines dissolved as they were bussed away, to be replaced by “Berkut” (police special forces).
A large area surrounding the Ukraina hotel, which an hour earlier had been under the control of riot police, fell to the young protesters. Dozens of wounded were dragged away on planks of wood, on makeshift stretchers, or dragged along the ground on their backs.

The protests in Ukraine have taken a deadlier turn this week, and one image in particular has captured the Internet’s attention: that of a blood-drenched father and son walking past a Ukrainian officer in riot gear.
Taken by a Reuters freelancer named Vlad Sodel, the photo highlights not only the devastation and violence in Kiev, but also how civilian and government forces have been pitted against each other.
Since the photo was posted online on Tuesday, it has gone viral on Reddit and Twitter, and has gone on to be used at news outlets such as the Atlantic, Business Insider and the New York Daily News to represent the horrors of “Bloody Tuesday.”
So who are the civilians in this photo? Internet sleuths have identified the father as Mykola Kuznetsov, a professor at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. It has not been determined whether Kuznetsov and his son were participating in protests, or whether they were just bystanders caught in the crossfire.
