Ukrainian students stand hand in hand to...Ukrainian students stand hand in hand to create a human chain symbolizing the unity of Ukraine with the EU in front of the tents set up by supporters of Yulia Tymoshenko in Kiev on November 2013. The chain begins on the Kiev's Independence Square  and, according to the organizers, must end at the border with Poland, the nearest EU country bordering the Ukraine.
