They are ready to stand here till Christmas under such conditions.
The protesters are ready to stand by the barricades of Euromaidan till Christmas, according to TSN. Maidan Nezalejnosti reminds of a real snow fortress. Some barricades reach the height of 5 meters. Sentinels, who watch out for approaching enemy, are positioned at the barricades.
