A Ukrainian woman makes a plea for people around the world to share her video explaining why the Ukrainians are protesting. The powerful video has been viewed more than 4 million times since it was posted on YouTube on Feb. 10. The Facebook group, Maidaners, identifies her simply as Yulia and says she is a post-graduate student in literature who along with her husband and mother, have been trying to help those in Maidan — which is Ukrainian for city square and the flashpoint for the protests.
