"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.

Atmosphere of an Empty Maidan

The atmosphere in Kiev is completely different to that in the east of the country. The people there are living in the belief that war is about to break out. Here, the atmosphere is as if it was already over. Kiev seems not to react at all to what is going on in the east. All efforts are being put into “returning to normal”. The wounded Maidan activists are trying to make the best of what local and foreign foundations are offering, returning to work or looking for new jobs. Those from the Crimea are wondering what to do next. Some want to go back, some others are extending their functioning on the Maidan which, to me, is completely unclear.

Maidan was supposed to be continued in order to realistically influence the new authorities, until the elections. The square in front of the Verkhovna Rada is empty though, just a few slogans remain beside bored ‘militsya’ men. I recall what pro-Ukrainian Maidan activists were saying in Donetsk – we went to Kiev when required and now we are alone with saboteurs, the Russian army along the border and armed separatists...

When we were observing the first “anti-terrorist action” in Kramatorsk, my colleague Serhij Lefter said, ”I hope all the time that I simply do not understand what the Ukrainian government are doing, that one day I will look at it from a distance and will be able to say: Aaaah, so that was Kiev’s plan!”. For now, Kiev does not seem to have a plan at all.
