According to NBC news,  George Sayevich, a resident of Silver Spring, Md., near Washington, D.C., was recovering Wednesday in a Kiev hospital, where he told The Associated Press that police beat him mercilessly even when he was lying on the ground. "I just got clubbed all over -- on the head, broke my arm in two places."   


Young female medic, shot in the neck, tweets, .I'm dying.. by tvi.ua

A young female medic, shot in the neck, tweeted, "I'm dying."

According to CNN, Alexander J. Motyl, professor of political science at Rutgers University-Newark, says that Yanukovych is "probably doomed," noting that "in many of the cities and provinces captured by the revolutionaries, riot police and militia have thrown down their weapons and joined the resistance." He calls the government brutality "the desperate measures of a dying regime" and notes that "Yanukovych has effectively lost control of at least half of Ukraine."

America was founded on the kind of revolution that is going on in Ukraine right now. If you want to show support what can you do?
