This is the list of people killed during Euromaidan events taking place in the fall and winter of 2013–2014. The list contains only confirmed deaths of Euromaidan participants, Ukrainian policemen and other victims killed by Euromaidan participants. There are currently over 110 identified civilian victims; almost all were protesters. 18 police officers were also killed during the clashes.[1] Ukrainian sources often refer to the killed protesters as the Heavenly Hundred.

On 21 February 2014, Verkhovna Rada recognized the perished protesters of Euromaidan as victims.[2] On 21 November 2014 by Petro Poroshenko's decree the Heavenly Hundred members were posthumously awarded the Hero of Ukraine title.[3]

The first deaths occurred on Unity Day, 22 January 2014, during riots on Hrushevskoho Street in Kiev, where 3 Euromaidan activists were shot dead. On the same day, a dead body of another Euromaidan activist was found on the outskirts of the city; he was kidnapped a day before with Ihor Lutsenko, who was released. These were the first victims to die in demonstrations in Ukraine since gaining national independence in 1991. The deaths caused widespread protests across the country. On 23 January 2014, then Prime Minister Mykola Azarov in an interview with BBC said that police had not been issued firearms, and denied any police officers were located on the rooftops around the protest area. He made an assumption that the shooting of protesters was a provocation aimed at escalating violence.[4] Party of Regions MP Arsen Klinchayev stated during a memorial service in Luhansk for those killed on 22 January by police, "These people were against the government. Nobody has the right to use physical force against police officers. And then they have their sticks, then stones, then something else. The police have the right to defend their lives. So I think it's right that these four people were killed. Moreover, I believe that you need to be stricter."[5]

5 More deaths in connection with Euromaidan occurred between 25 January and 13 February.

The second active phase started February 18. After a brief truce on 19 February, the clashes renewed 20 February. According to the newspaper Ukrainska Pravda, the special force (Berkut) and Interior Troops snipers[6] shot at people on Maidan and/or snipers located in nearby buildings, with special forces firing with AK-74 assault rifles.[7] The final death toll from these clashes in late February was 103 protesters and 13 police.[8][9][10] According to the Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Oleh Zalisko in February 2014 67 people were killed in Kiev's city centre, 184 sustained gunshot wounds and over 750 suffered bodily injuries (as stated on 9 December 2014).[11] On 20 February 2014, the (then) opposition parties (Batkivshchyna, UDAR and Svoboda) released a statement that stated "To hold talks with the regime, the policies of which led to the deaths of many people, is an extremely unpleasant thing but we must do everything possible and even the impossible to prevent further bloodshed".[12]

At least 17 people died from previously received wounds and injuries since then.

On 21 February 2014. Maidan participants wished last farewell to the perished protesters who they named the Heavenly Hundred.[13] During the event, a mourning Lemko song "A duck floats on Tysa..." was heard (Ukrainian: «Плине кача по Тисині…»).

On 24 February 2014, the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine's parliament) decided to propose the next Ukrainian president award the title Hero of Ukraine to protesters killed in the clashes with the riot police.[14]

Identity of snipers[edit]

On 30 March 2014, The Daily Beast published photos which it claimed were of members of the Alfa Group of the Ukrainian security services (SBU) taken on 20 February 2014 and asserted that these troops may have been trained by members of Russian special forces.[15]

The Interior Ministry's main investigations department has dismissed two deaths which occurred during the crisis as having no relation to Euromaidan or civil unrest.[98]

On 30 January 2014, Minister of Internal Affairs, Vitaliy Zakharchenko officially announced that 30 year-old captain of the Internal Troops of Ukraine Dmytro Donets died from heart attack as a consequence of daily stress from the standoff on Hrushevskoho.[99] Later the same day it became known that Donets was found already dead when his unit was alerted, while being quartered in the village of Stare (Boryspil Raion).[100][101] On 18 February, six officers were killed during an attack on protest camps in Kyiv.[102]

As of 2 March, The Ministry of Internal Affairs reported 18 police-officer fatalities related to the conflict.[1]

The name "Heavenly Hundred" refers to the pro-Euromaidan activists killed during Euromaidan.[106]

In April 2014 the Kyiv City State Administration and Culture Ministry of Ukraine stated that they expected to open a memorial complex "to the heroes of Heavenly Hundred" in February 2015, on the occasion of the anniversary of the death activists.[107]

On 1 July 2014 the Verkhovna Rada (the parliament of Ukraine) established the Medal "Order of Heroes Hundreds of Heaven".[108][109]

On 25 August 2014 President Petro Poroshenko claimed he had called the 2014 Ukrainian parliamentary election in order to purify parliament of MPs who had supported "the [January 2014] Dictatorship laws that took the live of the Heavenly hundred".[110][111]

Kiev City Council renamed a part of Instytutska Street into Heavenly Hundred Heroes Avenue on 20 November 2014.[112]
