02.02.2014Ruslana performed at EuroMaidan in Munich
On 1 and 2 February Ruslana performed at a 3-day EuroMaidan action in Munich which gathered Ukrainians from all over Germany and Europe.
Ruslana started her speech with a minute of silence in memory of the deceased Maidan activists during which hundreds of torches were lit.
“Maidan in Munich confirms that Ukrainians worldwide are a unity. They are joining hands in anticipation of threats as survival instinct. I want the whole world to understand us: we are afraid to lose the most precious: dignity, freedom, rights, Ukraine”, Ruslana said.
Ruslana appealed to all Ukrainians who gathered on Maidan in the center of Munich, to ask God to give wisdom to fill the heart with love, not detestation.
“Although this regime has brought to all of us a lot of pain, criminals, usurpation of power, corruption …. we have to choose the right methods of fighting without violence, to be clean in the face of God”, Ruslana said.
The Ukrainians in Munich had installed their “Christmas tree” decorating it with different Ukrainian symbols ad gave a big yellow and blue heart to Maidan in Kyiv. Even a girl on crutches attended the event.
The Maidan activists in Germany made a suggestion for a statement of Yanukovych: “Me, Victor Fedorovich Yanukovych, resign as president of Ukraine”.
The people who organized this Maidan asked tell the people in Ukraine that it will become warmer, if we are fighting together!
The Ukrainians also organized a march through the city of Munich and an AutoMaidan convoy. This action, unlike in Ukraine, was supported by the local police. Indeed, in Europe there is no ban on peaceful assemblies and nobody disperses peaceful protests by tear gas, water cannon in the cold, by flamethrowers or batons.
