During the months of January and February 2014, the National Parliamentary Library of Ukraine found itself at the center of the anti-government clashes in Kiev. The former Ukrainian government under President Yanukovych used violence to stop a non-violent protest and civil resistance collectively known as EuroMaidan (Ukrainian: Євромайдан). Nearly one hundred people were killed and almost one thousand wounded in the downtown area of Kiev.
