"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 – the besieged city

It is hard to resist such a feeling when you arrive at the city; in the centre, separatists – barricades, occupied offices, signs of fighting, burnt buildings, flowers placed where victims perished and symbols of the Donetsk People’s Republic. Conquered armoured vehicles, some still bearing Ukrainian flags, some already with black, blue and red (republican) ones, some are spray-painted.

Around Mariupol there are troops of the Ukrainian army, militsyia, voluntary "Donbas" and "Azov" battalions, Self-Defence; all of them armed; tanks, armoured vehicles. Things have moved on much since the time of clubs and Molotov cocktails on the Maidan... Still, there is a shortage of high quality helmets, bulletproof vests and tactical body armour. Battalion soldiers were initially transferred to Mariupol for 1-2 days, but have been told to stay for the time being, so they are organising clean underwear, toothpaste, mattresses etc. All this looks a little like trench warfare – each of the parties control their part of the territory and city residents pass by, on their way to work through one barricade or another. ​
