"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.

Dnipropetrovsk. The Civic Sector

The city’s civic organisations have launched The Civic Sector, a movement uniting the concerned, active citizens, whose ambition is to develop a new society. They represent the interests of non-partisan individuals, who are sick and tired of the oligarchy.

One of the most urgent tasks as defined by the Dnipropetrovsk civic organisations is lustration, which is perceived not only as a sort of cleansing, but also as a stage preparation of the cadre pool, whose most viable representatives could later be chosen for manning vacant posts. The absence of a law on lustration obstructs the completion of the defined missions. The “lustration form” is a key document, developed by the Civic Sector. The lustration criteria are adopted by local initiatives in other regions of Ukraine.

Representatives of the public are always in opposition to any government. They exercise control over the government. The Civic Sector aspires to shape public opinion and society as a whole.

The Civic Sector’s stand on separatism

Dialogue is the only possible means of resolving the problem. In our opinion, X-day, when the threat of war was a real one, has passed. Separatism is a mercenary attitude, a sentiment cherished by the criminal regime which robbed the people and instilled mercenary thinking into the impoverished masses. This is no separatism, but food riots which break out when the people demand better living standards.

Maidan became a turning point in people’s consciousness, and we paid a high price for it. If an information war is waged against us, we must join the fight and respond in kind. But it is thanks to figures like Putin and Yanukovych that society has displayed unprecedented unity, and patriotic spirit is soaring. The Crimea will eventually return to Ukraine as the ‘national Crimean Tatar autonomy’.
