"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.

All we need is peace

It is strangely quiet in Odessa today. Yesterday‘s Ukrainian march ended with the hoisting of the national flag in front of the trade unions building; it is only hanging at half-mast due to the announced state of  mourning. An outraged crowd of pro-Russian residents is gathered around it. They are convinced that the Right Sector burned peaceful demonstrators alive and the march was an expression of joy due to this fact. They want to remove the flag, but the policemen who, after the change of  government, must fulfill 'pro-Ukrainian' commands, are standing around. It is aparent that the policemen feel uncomfortable in their new role, they talk familiarly with 'pro-Russians' and are reluctant to stop the actions of activists.

Generally, in their presence I do not feel safer than before. A woman who came to lay a bunch of flowers with Ukrainian symbols on Kulikovo Field, provoked aggression. French journalists from their state Channel 5 were almost beaten as they could barely explain to the assailants that it was not the same 'fascist' Channel 5 from Kiev. Meanwhile, Bogdan, a resident of Odessa, carrying a Ukrainian flag, visits the statue of the Duke every day, and talks quietly with everyone who approaches him. He reiterates the same words most residents of Odessa utter – all we need is peace.
