The DIY Weapons Of The Ukranian Revolution

The riots in Kiev, Ukraine, which subsequently turned into a full blown revolution, weren't started by soldiers or police officers, they were started by average people willing to fight for their rights against a corrupt government.

DIY weaponry is the norm among the freedom fighting citizen soldiers that form the front lines, and these weapons look like something straight out of a post apocalyptic movie.

Photographer Tom Jamieson has chosen to document the DIY weapons of the Ukranian Revolution in a totally artsy way, taking them out of the fray and simply showcasing the brutal ingenuity and crude beauty of each weapon.

And even though you can't see the wielders in these photos you can somehow get a sense about them simply by looking at their choice of arms.

The comment thread on that post is certainly interesting. Living here, we watched the whole thing from start to (now- maybe it's not finished yet). These weapons showed up AFTER the demonstrators were brutally attacked. And really, when you look at what the other side was armed (including rifles with live ammunition and water cannons that were used on the protesters in below zero (F) temps) with, these weapons seem pathetically inadequate.
