"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.

Report from Simferopol, 15th march

The situation on the streets of Simferopol is calm. A pro-Russian euphoria and post-Soviet nostalgia prevail among the population. The referendum evoked sincere emotions among the people. Everyone seems to be happy, some of them are even crying. Young people are screaming “Russia! Russia!” until they lose their voices. They are chanting “Glory to Russia!” and hear the same cries in response. It’s easy to draw a parallel with the first stage of the Maidan – the euphoria and the false hope shared by the people. 

The economic situation in Simferopol (judging by the state of buildings) is tragic. Everything is dirty, houses (facades) are not renovated and only in the centre of the city are roads in good condition.

On the ‘day of silence’, actions and concerts in support of the referendum are being held at Lenin Square in Simferopol. Many young people have come from out of town, and many of them are drinking alcohol (you can literally smell liquor everywhere). People are celebrating (photo attached). Men in uniforms ask photographers not to take pictures of their faces.
