Automaidan to join opposition?
Not in its entirety perhaps, but a part of it, the one centered around one of the leaders, Ivan Rudyak. Ivan, just as many activists, is convinced that the embarrassment of the Maydan over the last months was a purposeful action organised and executed by the new authorities “Poroshenko and Klitschko with their titushki achieved what Yanukoyvch and his police failed to do. These authorities are even worse than the previous ones. I am joining the opposition and believe that part of our people will support me" – he says. The Kyiv Automaydan had for a long time been the most well-organised and active structures within the pro-European movement. Now, one of the projects they are involved in is giving assistance with rebuilding houses on the territories liberated by the Ukrainian army.
