"New Mariupol“

"New Mariupol" is the name of an organisation which was officially registered only two weeks ago but has already changed the city’s image.

Life is back to normal in Sloviansk

Sloviansk nowadays is a city of contrasts. Evidence of fighting is still visible there and the withdrawing separatists have left not only a huge network of trenches near Siyemionovka (city’s suburbs), but even toothbrushes in the field washbasins they had organised. 

“Kiev Ruthenia” battalion on front Line

For many weeks now, the 11th “Kiev Ruthenia” Battalion has been surrounded on three sides and shelled by separatists. They can be reached only from the side of Debalcev and under a special permit only.

Maidan without the Maidan. In memoriam

The time has come when one may feel tempted to draw certain conclusions. The so-called “cleaning” of the Maidan, that is the removal of the tents that had stood there since winter, was a complete success. There is virtually nothing remaining in the Ukrainian capital main square to remind one of the “tent town” that used to be there barely a few weeks ago.

Self-Defense in their new base in Kyiv

Sotnyas managed to obtain permission from the municipal authorities to take over the old Pechersk citadel. The idea was supported in the first place by historians, who had for a long time stood in stern defense of this monument of architecture from subsequent attempts to have it demolished.

Is it patriotism yet?

In Kyiv he understood – all that was left for him was Ukraine. Ukraine told him clearly what to do. Ukraine was sunflower fields and no stupid questions asked. A dead friend’s memento knife.

Maidan’s last days

The last phase of so-called Maidan “cleansing” that is to say the removal of the last tents is just about to finish.

A rally on the Maidan

Another rally was organised on the Maidan. Top-ranking officials were present on the stage: Chief of the Security Service of Ukraine, Valentin Nalyvaychenko, Minister of Culture, Yevhen Nyshchuk, Acting Minister of Foreign Affairs, Andriy Deshchytsia, Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, Andrey Parubiy; they were accompanied by social activists. Secretary of the National Security and Defence Council of Ukraine, Andrey Parubiy informed participants about the gathering of Russian troops at the Ukrainian-Russian border near Chernigov, Kharkov, Donetsk and the Crimea. Moreover, it was announced from the stage that yesterday was the funeral of the 20-year-old boy from Lugansk, who had served in the Self-Defence and had been killed by pro-Russian activists. Members of the paramilitary unit ‘Oplot’ from Kharkov are suspected in the murder, as they allegedly kidnapped and killed people in January and February 2014.

People gathered near the scene began to demand that they be given weapons. Chief of the Security Service of Ukraine, Valentin Nalyvaychenko, urged the participants to join the National Guard of Ukraine, and declared that its members would be equipped with weapons.

Meanwhile, in all the cities and towns of the East and the South, demonstrations are held - on the one hand, the rallies of solidarity with Ukraine, on the other hand - pro-Russian actions. In Kharkov, more than 1,500 people gathered near the Shevchenko monument. The so-called ‘Putin’s tourists’ and locals who support Russia and referendum regarding the disconnection from Ukraine, gathered near the Lenin monument.
