In response to shouts of «Long live, Ukraine!» Crimeans shouted «Long live Berkut!», «Crimea is not Maydan», «Fascism will not pass!», and in contrast to the anthem of Ukraine started to sing «stand up, great country…».
It is noteworthy that in the first series Maidan participants put a stroller with an baby, and that caused huge indignation of the Evromaidan protesters. The main speaker from the Evromaidan’s side was Evgeniy Noviczkiy. He said that no police officer was hurt. After these words Antimaidan supporters finally muffled him down, and the Crimean residents, living in the area, began shoting, joining them. Watching a truly widespread people’s support, the Maidan protesters quickly left the place. The whole action lasted no more than half an hour.
