"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.

People’s Republic of Lugansk

The territory of the People’s Republic of Lugansk is largely the territory surrounding the SBU building (Security Service of Ukraine). This is where the young republic’s life plays out. They have created something similar to the Kiev Maidan – the best replication I have seen so far.

The region administration building, situated a few streets away, is also occupied by separatists and is not currently fulfilling its functions. The barricades around it, unlike those near SBU, are rather symbolic ones. Yet the building is guarded by Don Cossacks – they say they are local citizens but I am not sure of that. They could be, as there are both Ukrainian and Don Cossack organisations acting in in Lugansk. The police building, which had been occupied for several days, has been handed over to its legal owners – perhaps because they are pro-Russian anyway, so occupying the building doesn’t make sense? Obviously It has been professionally prepared for defence: sandbags, tin, a guarded entrance – all this appears serious. What I’m not sure about is who the Lugansk policemen intend to protect themselves against, if it comes to that – the separatists or the Ukrainian army...
