“I’m reluctant to talk about this because we are protesters and not illegal armed groups,” Mr. Levus said. “But the square was about to look different. There would be more people, and they would not have had empty hands.”
Despite the dwindling of the protective fires, the protesters decided to hold on to the square long enough for both sides to consider the significance of the arrival of the weapons in the capital.
Do you want me to link you some videos of snipers wasting unarmed medics with stretchers trying to do their best to save other unarmed victims of said snipers? You're Donny from The Big Lebowski on your best day, my dude. Please stop.
Also, that's not an update. You know what else is not an update because it's old news? The fact that the same protesters are now patrolling the streets together with police officer in order to avoid any possible provocations. Oh and, BTW, the vast majority of those weapons stolen in Lviv have been returned. Obviously the criminal element is taking full advantage of the situation which is bound to happen but hopefully the remaining guns will be recovered in the end.
