The Sniper. The Orange Revolution ignited in 2005 and it’s fire is back. I found Myroslava Leshchenko in 2005 and now here in this Al-Jazeera Witness documentary Leshchenko, a former sniper for the people’s resistance against invading Nazi Germany during World War II tells her story of Ukraine. I met her at the tent city of Maidan Square in central Kiev. Myroslava says she felt pround of being Ukranian but she confessed to have many family ties in Russia due to the geographic history of war and conquest.
