Kyiv is a bloodbath. It has been officially confirmed that 67 protesters were killed. Mostly shot by the police and snipers (which are not just a suggestion now - there are photos and videos of the snipers). The snipers’ aim changed from time to time, and mostly they aimed at people’s legs, but…

“This is the kind of photograph that ends up in history books”

The protests in Ukraine have taken a deadlier turn this week, and one image in particular has captured the Internet’s attention: that of a blood-drenched father and son walking past a Ukrainian officer in riot gear.
Taken by a Reuters freelancer named Vlad Sodel, the photo highlights not only the devastation and violence in Kiev, but also how civilian and government forces have been pitted against each other.
Since the photo was posted online on Tuesday, it has gone viral on Reddit and Twitter, and has gone on to be used at news outlets such as the Atlantic, Business Insider and the New York Daily News to represent the horrors of “Bloody Tuesday.”
So who are the civilians in this photo? Internet sleuths have identified the father as Mykola Kuznetsov, a professor at the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine. It has not been determined whether Kuznetsov and his son were participating in protests, or whether they were just bystanders caught in the crossfire.
