Ukrainian people urgently want change in their troubled country, says a Saskatoon woman who now lives in Kiev.
Lana Nicole Kubin, who moved to Ukraine a decade ago and is now the editorin-chief of an English-language lifestyle magazine there, spends every free evening gathering with protesters camped in a public square in Kiev.
What started as a political protest became personal in November when Ukrainian special forces beat peaceful protesters to send an intimidating message, Kubin said. “It was a call to action, really.”
