"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.

"Have an apple" in the Maydan

Poland is supporting Ukraine, but the Ukrainians do not forget Poles either. The Independence Maydan is now hosting the “Have an apple” action, organised in a show of support for Poland in view of the Russian embargo against Polish fruit. The volunteers waived posters with signs in Polish and Ukrainians, encouraging the passersby to eat Polish apples (which can be found in many of Kyiv’s shops). The Ukrainians were also joined by young Belarusians. Valentina, the originator of the action, explains: "Since the very beginning, the Poles have supported Maydan and assisted Ukrainians during the hard times we had. It is our way of expressing gratitude and showing solidarity with them". 

Polska wspiera Ukrainę, ale Ukraińcy również nie zapominają o Polakach.  Na Majdanie Niezależności przeprowadzono akcję "Zjedz jabłko", zorganizowaną jako wyraz wsparcia Polski w warunkach wprowadzenia przez Rosję embargo na nasze owoce.

Wolontariusze trzymali plakaty z napisami po polsku i po ukraińsku i zachęcali przechodniów do jedzenia polskich jabłek (które można znaleźć w wielu kijowskich sklepach). Do Ukraińców przyłączyli się też młodzi Białorusini. Walentyna, która była główną pomysłodawczynią akcji, wyjaśnia: "Od samego początku Polacy wspierali Majdan i pomagali Ukraińcom podczas trudnych wydarzeń, z nim związanych. To jest nasz sposób powiedzenia 'dziękuję' i wyrażenia naszej solidarności z Wami".
