KIEV, Ukraine – The young Ukrainian woman who tweeted "I am dying" when a sniper's bullet wounded her is having a hard time being optimistic these days.
The movement for which she became a symbol has triumphed, but so many other problems have befallen her country.
Olesya Zhukovska laments how little has been accomplished, saying she doesn't want the blood that was spilled to be wasted.
The 21-year-old Zhukovska joined the Kiev protests as a volunteer medic, and on Feb. 20 was shot in the neck.
She smiles at the drama of the message she tweeted as she was led to an ambulance. While painful, the shooting left no lasting injuries.
Even as she worries about Ukraine's future, Zhukovska insists her efforts haven't been wasted.
"Everything," she says, "will be good."
