"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.

Ordinary Day of Revolution in Mariupol

In Mariupol, the revolution is in the hands of local criminal groups. I hear, now and again, that it is like going back to the 1990s yet under a new banner. There is hardly any militsyia present in the city, and so rampages are widespread. Even those who stood in long queues here on Sunday at election stations to cast their votes for the Donetsk Republic, are dismayed at the appearance of the city centre.

This is no Maidan, not even ODA in Donetsk – alcohol bottles and rubbish can be seen everywhere. A party goes on at night – drunken “separatists" – boys of less than 20 are having their photos taken in combat-style stances on conquered armoured vehicles. With the girls who are most willing to pose in their arms and with weapons. An inscription on the wall of a nearby building reads: “Our men are heroes”. A solitary attempt to keep order in the city is being made by voluntary patrols of employees of one of Akhmetov factories – they are wearing work jackets so that everyone can immediately identify them. They practically have no authorisation, but their presence calms residents a little.
