Hundreds of nationalists carry torches for a rally marking the anniversary of a 1918 battle between young Ukrainians and the USSR's Red Army. Formerly peaceful public demonstrations surrounding trade deals with the European Union escalated into violence last month over the government's draconian anti-protest laws. On Jan. 29, 2014, former President Leonid Kravchuk warned that the country was "on the brink of civil war." (Photo by Yuriy Dyachyshyn/AFP/Getty Images)
