Protesters throw Molotov cocktails at police in Kiev, January 2014
It has been a bloody year for Ukraine. The Euromaidan revolution, which culminated in the resignation of president Viktor Yanukovych and his government, came after months of protests in the capital Kiev.
Subsequent crises in Crimea and Donbass have seen the country on the brink of splintering, with pro-Russian rebels and government forces battling in the east.
Perhaps as a direct result of this violent 12 months, data on Google's "A Year in Search" shows that the most searched for recipe in Ukraine was for "Molotov cocktail".
