"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.

Kharkiv on the eve of 9th May

On the eve of 9th May, Kharkiv appears drowsy and quiet. After the morning rehearsal, before the holiday parade on Svoboda square by Lenin’s monument, only a few old age pensioners remain with communist party banners, along with a dozen or so yawning militsyia men around the monument. Not a single "kolorado", but the whole of the city is full of Ukrainian flags – on pillars, walls, fences...

The Self-Defence have been working actively over the past few days with militsyia and the SBU to ensure order in the city – the authorities seem to have taken the task seriously after the riots in Odessa; all those responsible for the developments were released and now they want to make sure that no trouble will break out. I think nothing will happen.

Some description

Even though the outposts on the roads leading into the city did little to enhance my sense of security, the AutoMaidan are actively patrolling the streets at night too, and the citizens’ sector are sending their “spies” wherever the incoming titushkas settle and are providing information to the interested militsyia. Tomorrow, the events are to be held in the presence of 1500 militia men and other service officers. All pro-Ukrainian meetings have been cancelled but Father Victor, representing the Orthodox Church – Kyiv Patriarchate, today organised a truly mediaeval procession around the city to keep evil away from its borders – even though, in the spirit of the times, the procession included cars and a bus.

To add to it all, getting better after the assassination, Kernes was talking today about the Ukrainian Kharkiv and the support for the idea of Ukrainian unity... Even though all forces associated with the Maidan will be on full alert from the very morning, but if my intuition proves to be right, I could quite easily go to a holiday picnic in the afternoon.
