Removal of the ‘Polish’ barricade in Kiev
Maidan will stay on duty until the presidential election on 25 May. Members of the self-defence are holding their positions and guarding the government buildings, and many people cannot find their place in the new reality. Often, they have no place to go back to, or no funds to do so. They need psychological care and assistance to adapt to ‘civilian’ life. There are families that are sustained by their relatives and friends, as their breadwinners have served on the Maidan for several weeks.
Today, the ‘Polish’ barricade on Kostelnaya Street, near the headquarters of our mission, has been removed. The barricade had been erected on Thursday, 20 February, the day when the most sanguinary clashes took place.
