Mykola, 24, from Kiev sits in his apartment in a Soviet-style flat near the outskirts of Kiev, Ukraine on April 4, 2014. Mykola was shot in the left leg near his ankle at 4:30am on February 19, 2014, while filming and walking up steps in the middle of Maidan Square.
"They aimed at journalists and those with cameras to start clearing Maidan. I personally don't know who did this. But I know it was these special Alpha troops led by Asaveluk and I know he has not been relieved of his duty. I was there from the very first day, the night November 21st. We were aiming to change the rules of the game. What I see now is a change of power and authorities without changes to the system. If the change will not come, we will have a third Maidan and it will be more serious." -Mykola
