The Ukrainian Revolution brought about the means of crafting homemade, medieval-esque revolutionary weaponry. Having to battle the Ukrainian army, protesters resorted to creating vicious weapons that are similar to those of the Medieval age.
These homemade weapons have been the subject of a photo series by photographer Tom Jamieson, who told Wired. "You couldn’t help but notice the DIY nature of the whole thing, from the barricades themselves to the totally inadequate body armor that people were wearing, and the weapons as well. It looked like something out of Mad Max, it was crazy."
From clubs with nails hammered in them to stun grenades, these handcrafted battle axes each tell their own story. Though medieval compared to modern security forces, they instilled a sense of hope and defense that is much needed among the citizens of the occupied zone.
