Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovych said he is open to early elections if that will end the violence that has embroiled his country.  In the midst of the violence, one woman, recorded her plea for freedom, which was posted on A Whisper To Roar's YouTube channel.

A Whisper to Roar is a documentary, which details "the heroic stories of courageous democracy activists in five countries around the world - Egypt, Malaysia, Ukraine, Venezuela and Zimbabwe - who risk it all to bring freedom to their people."

The Ukrainian woman's video has since gone viral, attracting more than five million views to-date. CNN did a segment about it. Her people simply want to be free from abusive government, she explains:

There is only one reason: We want to be free from a dictatorship. We want to be free from the politicians who work only for themselves, who are ready to shoot, to beat, to injure people just for saving their money, just for saving their houses, just to save their power.

I want these people who are here to have dignity, who are brave, I want them to live a normal life. We are civilized people, but our government are barbarians. That's not a Soviet Union. We want our courts not to be corrupted. We want to be free.
