The aim of the platform, administered by the Open Dialog Foundation, is to provide to up date information on human rights violations in Ukraine.

"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.

East and West Together

The delegation of the Open Dialog Foundation has placed a floral wreath at the place where the "Heavenly Sotnia" fought. We talk to a man who fought in the "Parovoz" unit from which 2 out of 10 persons were killed.

A man about 55 years old feels guilty: - Why didn’t they kill me, an old man? Why did young boys die instead?

People lay flowers, burning cigarettes and plastic cups containing vodka at the place where the Maidan defenders died. The man invites us into a tent. We become acquainted with his friends. They fear that, although the revolution in Kiev has succeeded, they might still be deceived in the end. The revolution was a spontaneous bottom-up movement, It had no appointed leaders. Now, when bullets have ceased flying, politicians have crawled out of their holes. They are standing on the Big Stage, taking credit for other people's work. The Maidan defenders suppose that the leaders, who will „turn up“ after the victory, will sell Ukraine to the oligarchs again. It has happened before... 

They are afraid that Ukraine might be divided into two parts – the West, including Kiev, where the revolution ended up in success, and the East, where the oligarchs retain influence. A banner has been hung over the street: EAST AND WEST TOGETHER!
