On the 9th of December, thousands of car drivers self-identified as Automaidan went to the luxurious residence of the president Yanukovich to remind him his promise to listen to people. The government heard but didn’t listen. They started their revenge with the help of the riot police, criminal groups, and the court system. Drivers licences were unlawfully taken away from hundreds of people. The activists were kidnapped and tortured, arrested, their cars destroyed. On the 30th of January, mass arsons started. Every night cars are being set on fire in Kyiv. Overall, there were over 50 cars burnt.
