The tale of a post-modern martyr
As protestors fought riot police in Kiev yesterday, as the city center turned into a charred crater, volunteer medics skittered through the melee, attending to the hundreds wounded in the fight, pulling them into hotel lobbies and churches for treatement.

5 women, including 2 former members of the band, emerged singing from the police station.
