"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.

Cossacks vs “Narnia”

The Cossacks may have left Maydan, but not moved out of Kyiv. For months on end, they have enjoyed their (well-earned) reputation, and perhaps this is how they managed to negotiate their move to Trukhanova Island with the municipal administration. The Cossack Sich has been stationed there for some days now, and the sotnya took part in the “island cleaning” organised by the city authorities this weekend. After the recent events, some had feared that under the guise of community work, new attacks were being planned against what remains of the Maydan – but so far no incidents have been reported. 

There are, however, reasons to be concerned. On Friday, the last symbols of the Maydan were gone – the Christmas tree, the stage and the Spilno.tv social TV tents. The latter two were partly removed by the so-called “Klitschko titushki” or the “neo-titushki”. Their core was formed by the activists of the so-called “Narnia”, a group whose origins are just as mysterious as its name. They first became known in February 2014, when they took over the building of administration (KMDA) which was given to the Maydan by the municipal administration, thus breaking the previous arrangements. Officially, however, they are not related to any organisation, calling themselves the “Kyiv self-defense".

Their recent “fame” was earned from “cleaning” the Maydan whilst employing methods seen earlier as the signature style of Yanukovych titushki – by destroying, breaking and setting the tents on fire. During their subsequent “revue” on Friday they violently assaulted the activists defending the stage and the field base of our colleagues from Spilno.tv; three of the journalists were hospitalised, one of them with concussion.

When asked, one of the “Narnia” representatives said their main goal was to “keep the city in order and prevent riots".
