A year after the sniper bloodbath on Kiev's Maidan square, troubled Ukraine mourns the victims

People pay their respects in honor of the "Heavenly Hundred" on Independence Square in Kiev, Ukraine, Friday, Feb. 20, 2015. The "Heavenly Hundred" is what Ukrainians in Kiev call those who died during months of anti-government protests in 2013-14.

Russia has annexed Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula, Ukraine has a new president and government, and the country is embroiled in a war in the east with Russia-backed separatists that has killed over 5,600 people and forced a million to flee.(AP Photo/Sergei Chuzavkov) (The Associated Press)
