Goat Swamp (Ukr., Kozyne Boloto) is the original name of the area in central Kiev where Maidan Nezalezhnosti, or Independence Square, found itself the epicenter of global tensions in 2014. Unlike sheep, goats do what they will and command special attention in folklore for their pugnacious and fertile abandonment to freedom.

So it is with the creative accoutrements of these anonymous street fighters, their homemade uniforms, molotovs, trophies, and tire barricades — the smoking language of the Revolt’s siege apparatus, as photographed by Donald Weber and Arthur Bondar. The two worked independently to bring a dual perspective to the orchestrated chaos of a deadly street theatre.
