"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.

Authorities and citizens – summer of love’s end?

I am here at the Supreme Council buildings. It is hard to say which protest is taking place – there is at least one held every day, sometimes more. 

I am here, because as an organisation, we support reforms in Ukraine and back the notion by Yehor Sobolev, who demands a vetting process – among others by submitting the proposed legislative changes for wide approval.

This time something has changed. Ever since Yanukovych fled, the park at the Supreme Council and its grounds had been open to the public. The leaders of protests would stand on the stairs, right next to the building’s doors. Now, the Council is once more encircled by a black iron fence and the building is guarded by a police perimeter – clearly dividing the society and the authorities.

There is no such thing as “real democracy” anywhere in the world; it is quite understandable that a state is, by virtue of its nature, and organisation, of coercive character. But it is a bad omen indeed in Ukraine.

The majority of protests – with certain exceptions – were peaceful; therefore, the desire to fence the citizens off seems even more curious.
