List of people killed during Euromaidan
This is the list of people killed during Euromaidan events taking place in the fall and winter of 2013–2014. The list contains only confirmed deaths of Euromaidan participants, Ukrainian policemen and other killed by Euromaidan participants. There are currently near 130 identified deaths; most of them were civilian protesters. 18 police officers were also killed during the clashes.
Ukrainian sources often refer to the killed protesters as the Heavenly Hundred. On 21 February 2014, Verkhovna Rada recognized the perished protesters of Euromaidan as victims. On 21 November 2014 by Petro Poroshenko's decree the perished Ukrainian protesters of Euromaidan were posthumously awarded the Hero of Ukraine title. Three non-Ukrainian citizens killed in the Euromaidan events were each posthumously awarded the title Knight of the Order of the Heaven's Hundred Heroes. 2015 "the Day of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes" was celebrated on 20 February to commemorate the deaths.
The first deaths occurred on Unity Day, 22 January 2014, during riots on Hrushevskoho Street in Kiev, where 3 Euromaidan activists were shot dead. On the same day, a dead body of another Euromaidan activist was found on the outskirts of the city; he was kidnapped a day before with Ihor Lutsenko, who was released. These were the first victims to die in demonstrations in Ukraine since gaining national independence in 1991. The deaths caused widespread protests across the country. On 23 January 2014, then Prime Minister Mykola Azarov in an interview with BBC said that police had not been issued firearms, and said no police officers were located on the rooftops around the protest area. He stated that the shooting of protesters was a provocation by extremist forces aimed at escalating violence. Party of Regions MP Arsen Klinchayev stated during a memorial service in Luhansk for those killed on 22 January by police, "These people were against the government. Nobody has the right to use physical force against police officers. And then they have their sticks, then stones, then something else. The police have the right to defend their lives. So I think it's right that these four people were killed. Moreover, I believe that you need to be stricter."
5 more deaths in connection with Euromaidan occurred between 25 January and 13 February.
The second active phase started February 18. After a brief truce on 19 February, the clashes renewed 20 February. According to the newspaper Ukrainska Pravda, the special force (Berkut) and Interior Troops snipers shot at people on Maidan and/or snipers located in nearby buildings, with special forces firing with AK-47 assault rifles. 20 February was the bloodiest day of the clashes with at least 21 anti-government protesters being killed. The final death toll from these clashes in late February was 103 protesters and 13 police. According to the Deputy Prosecutor General of Ukraine Oleh Zalisko in February 2014 67 people were killed in Kiev's city centre, 184 sustained gunshot wounds and over 750 suffered bodily injuries (as stated on 9 December 2014). On 20 February 2014, the (then) opposition parties (Batkivshchyna, UDAR and Svoboda) released a statement that stated "To hold talks with the regime, the policies of which led to the deaths of many people, is an extremely unpleasant thing but we must do everything possible and even the impossible to prevent further bloodshed".
At least 17 people died from previously received wounds and injuries since then.
On 21 February 2014. Maidan participants wished last farewell to the perished protesters who they named the Heavenly Hundred. During the event, a mourning Lemko song "A duck floats on Tysa..." was heard (Ukrainian: «Плине кача по Тисині…»).
On 24 February 2014, the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine's parliament) decided to propose the next Ukrainian president award the title Hero of Ukraine to protesters killed in the clashes with the riot police.

Police also claimed that Pavlo's wife stated he was not involved in Euromaidan protests. Ukrainian UNIAN News Agency interviewed Pavlo's wife days after, and she commented her husband was beaten by "three men in black uniform and batons [...] more resembling interior ministry servicemen, or a private security company staff".

Legacy of the death pro-Euromaidan activistsEdit
Ukrainian sources often refer the pro-Euromaidan activists who died during Euromaidan as "The Heavenly Hundred". In April 2014 the Kiev City State Administration and Culture Ministry of Ukraine stated that they expected to open a memorial complex "to the heroes of Heavenly Hundred" in February 2015, on the occasion of the anniversary of the death activists. On 1 July 2014 the Verkhovna Rada (the parliament of Ukraine) established the Medal "Order of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes". On 25 August 2014 President Petro Poroshenko claimed he had called the 2014 Ukrainian parliamentary election in order to purify parliament of MPs who had supported "the [January 2014] Dictatorship laws that took the lives of the Heavenly hundred".
President Poroshenko decreed on 11 February 2015 that 20 February will annually be commemorated as "Day of the Heavenly Hundred Heroes"; his decree also establish (an action plan to accomplish) a museum in Kiev dedicated to Euromaidan. On 20 February it is compulsory for Ukrainian TV channels to display a flaming candle or a similar stylized image and at 12:00 a minute of silence must be observed.
