"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.

Mariupol is preparing for defence

The situation in south-eastern Ukraine is very serious. For the past few weeks, Russia has been transporting military equipment and troops to the territory of Ukraine in increasing volumes. The well-known “lost” soldiers, caught by Ukrainians, are only a tiny fraction of the whole picture. Most recent information says that Russian troops are crossing the border in uniforms identifying them as RF army. Putin is stilly cynically denying that, in actual fact, an open invasion has started.

Novoazovsk was taken over yesterday and the Russian army are moving further west, along the coast. The city next in line is Mariupol. There is unconfirmed information in circulation that the Russian army have been ordered to seize the city and continue their march in the direction of Odessa. To me, it sounds likely, perhaps because despite active resistance on the part of the Ukrainian army, Putin has not modified the extent of “Novorossiya” proclaimed back in March. On maps published by the separatists, the Odessa district is the last administrative territory in the west to be annexed to the new “state”.

Clearly, this is certainly not an operation planned to be undertaken in a week. The conquest of Mariupol will not be easy, for sure. Preparations to defend the city are underway; troops with heavy equipment are regularly coming to the rescue. But some of the weapons from the Kiev parade have also been sent to Odessa which may indicate that the Ukrainian government are anticipating future developments as described.
