"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.

It is Quiet in Odessa Again

Nearly a month after the tragic developments, life is back to normal in Odessa. There is hardly anyone on Kulikove Pole. Although there are still flowers there and photos of those who perished in the fire have appeared – in the style in which the “Heavenly Sontya” is honoured (one thought keeps coming to my mind: Why do they have to copy everything?!), but the aggressive crowd who beat my friend up because he had shouted "Glory to Ukraine", is long gone.

It is quiet now in the square. There is only a stall with Ukrainian symbols. The Trade Unions building has been surrounded with a metal fence and access is permitted only upon granted permission from the guards (which is easy to get). The Ukrainian flag is still over the square, placed there during my last stay in town. And on the roof of the Unions, in turn, someone has placed... a red flag of the USSR. They are flying in the wind concertedly and no one sees anything peculiar in that. After the hot beginning of May, the atmosphere is apolitical and apathetic, that is typical of Odessa.
