In February 2014, hundreds of Ukrainians gathered in Kiev in violent protest. The events, also called the Euromaidan Revolution, ended in the removal of President Viktor Yanukovych and the overthrow of the Ukrainian government. In March 2014, the Russian Federation took control over the Crimean Peninsula in the aftermath of the Ukrainian Revolution. The Crimean Peninsula, located in the northern part of the Black Sea, remains under Russian control. The annexation directly violated international law and continues to be a point of conflict in the region.
