Back to burning: Maidan activists set tires on fire to protest eviction (PHOTO)

Nauseous black smoke from burning tires is back in Central Kiev. A group of Maidan activists set them on fire in a gesture of protest against an order from Kiev’s elected Mayor Vladimir Klitshchko’s to remove the barricades.

Some 30 angry activists ignited several tires with a Molotov cocktail and wouldn’t allow a fire crew to out the flames out.
 
They threatened to start “a third Maidan” (following the 2004 protest during the “orange revolution” and the second one in November 2013-February 2014), unless the order to dismantle the barricades in the Ukrainian capital is rescinded.
