"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.

Refugees from Gorlovka

The town of Gorlovka is under the control of the army of the Donetsk Peoples’ Republic. During the past weeks, the town has been under continued shelling and because of this, more and more people are literally running away from their houses.

I met refugees from the east for the first time in a camp near Kiev. While we were talking in a quiet sanatorium, children were playing around us, and some were quarrelling about who was to use the washing machine first, it was hard to believe that a few days or weeks before, war had been their reality. Today, I could see those people leaving their home town – with little luggage, getting on minibuses which come to the station in the town’s suburbs every day at 10:00. I’m looking at them and have no doubt that these are people who had feared for their lives a few hours before. When they try to talk about what is going on in their town, they cry.

After the bridge on the river flowing through the town had been blown up and the withdrawal of the separatists to the other bank, the district where the station is proved to be a no man’s land and hence evacuation from Gorlovka can be organised relatively safely. The minibus, for which the refugees are waiting, is in service thanks to the volunteers of the Christian community of “Good News” from Sloviansk. Since the beginning of the war, the drivers have taken more than 3,500 people from places of shelling. They take everyone for free, to Sloviansk, where some of them stay and some travel further – to their families or friends. The ones who have nowhere to go, are taken to the transitory camp in Sviatogorsk.
