The illumination show was organized during Euromaidan in Kharkov
About two hundred participants of Euromaidan stood in the form of the letters "EU" on Independence Square. People brought glowing objects with them such as flashlights, lighters, and mobile phones, and raised them above their heads. By this act the participants as if shed light on the way of Ukraine to Europe.
