Still Life On Kyiv's Independence Square

With Ukrainian protesters occupying several key buildings in Kyiv, the heart of the demonstrations -- Independence Square -- continues to live a life of its own. Antigovernment activists, some of whom have been living on the square for two months, are waiting for opposition leaders' negotiations with the government to move forward. Meanwhile, they fill their time preparing food, battling the cold, and sometimes just playing chess. (Photos by Franak Viachorka, RFE/RL's Belarus Service)
