"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.

Image from Lviv. Lyhakiv Cemetery

Lyhakiv Cemetery: A place which has been connecting and dividing Poles and Ukrainians for hundreds of years. Established at the end of the 18th century, the Cemetery has witnessed many developments. Personalities important for both nations and both cultures, such as Maria Konopnicka, Gabriela Zapolska, Ivan Franko, Volodymyr Ivasiuk and many others have found a place there for their eternal rest.

In the mausoleum here, there are also Polish defenders of Lviv and the Ukrainian Sich Riflemen. One next to the other – the quarter of the Lviv Eagles next to the mausoleum of heroes of the Ukrainian Halicka Army. The negotiated agreement – a permit for the Eagles Cemetery in return for the mausoleum erected with funds from the Lviv city administration. The negotiations were ongoing throughout the 1990s and concerned details such as the content of the inscriptions. The agreements made at the level of central authorities and Presidents of the states were, regrettably, blocked a number of times by local councillors.

Today, we are connected through the freshly dug graves of those who have perished in the ATO zone, and it remains to be hoped that the connection will be a permanent one.
