"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.

March of Remembrance

The views of the author do not represent the official position of the Foundation; the expressed opinions are subjective and are those of the author. The Foundation consistently opposes Putin‘s confrontational policy and recognises Ukraine’s right to territorial integrity.

The author’s intention was to describe the developments which took place between 24-26 April, 2014 in Odessa, including events at the Self-Defence station and the subsequent reaction of Russian community, gathered on Kulikovo Field.

Odessa, 26th April 2014 

At 4 p.m., the March of Remembrance set off from Kulikove Pole, joined by approximately 1500 people. The marchers commemorated the BERKUT officers and Interior Troops soldiers who died in February 2014 in Kiev, demanding that the ones who perished be deemed Ukrainian heroes and that their killers be judged.

A BERKUT pennant was carried by family members with portraits of the victims. Chants repeatedly rang out:

The march went along Pushkinska, Zhukovskogo and Aleksandrovsky Prospekt streets, to the Memorial of Killed Militsiya Men. There were attempts to disturb the march by people who, standing in  open gates to buildings or on balconies, were shouting: GLORY TO UKRAINE!

During the fighting on Kiev’s Maidan, 1270 BERKUT officers and Interior Troops soldiers were wounded, of whom 150 suffered gunshot wounds, and 20 officers were killed.
