Even before the Crimea returned to Russia and no one could imagine a full-scale war in Lugansk and Donetsk, weird facts started to come in. When president Yanukovich fled the country, he didn’t evacuate his residence Mezhigorye. As the Maidan supporters entered its premises, they found three crucified hawks. Some hunters later explained this was a standard routine — before cooking one must keep the bird in a dry place high off the ground (so that wild animals wouldn’t reach it), still many including the author of this article were not convinced. The hawk is also regarded as the embodiment of the Ukrainian nation in some of the pagan circles.
