Amid the chaos and destruction in the Ukraine, a man paused to propose to his girlfriend on the barricades.
As his comrades lit flares around him, the demonstrator used a megaphone to profess his love, before getting down on one knee to pop the question.
The images, captured by photographer Oleksandr Stashevskiy, show the man, wearing a helmet, balaclava and bullet-proof jacket, putting a ring on her finger before the couple embrace.
Ukraine has been rocked by weeks of demonstrations by pro-EU protesters.
