Homemade Weapons From The Ukrainian Revolution

It’s tough for us to stay up-to-snuff on current affairs, what with our being so laser-focused on the world of manly pursuits and all, but we do know some serious ish has been going down in Ukraine.

Need proof? Check out these photos of DIY weapons that protesters brought to Maidan Square to challenge the Ukrainian army and overthrow President Yanukovych. The pictures were snapped on the ground by photographer Tom Jamieson, who simply set up a simple black backdrop and had each person hold their weapon in front of it. There’s rocks, spiked clubs, sticks with chains and wood bricks, crazy looking slingshots, and more. Many of the weapons have messages written on them, like “Glory to Ukraine” or “Sailor of the Black Sea Fleet.” We don’t know exactly what that means, but no, we’d rather not get a closer look, thank you.
