Antonetta Mischenko, a student of the Kyiv Conservatory, rescued a piano that was going to be used as a building block for barricades. The instrument became a symbol of nonviolent revolution and resistance against authoritarian rules in Ukraine. Soon, the piano united the Maidan’s protesters, who tirelessly sang Ukraine’s national anthem and folk songs to its accompaniment, ignoring the frost and snow. The instrument proved to be more efficient a weapon than Molotov’s cocktail… The authorities called the singing protesters ‘the piano extremists’.
