"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.

Riots in Kiev

On Tuesday, 18 February, 2014, the EuroMaidan participants held a peaceful march towards the headquarters of the Supreme Council of Ukraine. As a result of provocation by the Anti-Maidan and use of stun grenades by police, riots started on Institutska Street and in Mariinsky Park. Military vehicles were burned. At approx. 1:00 p.m., Berkut special militia detachments appeared on the scene. Through the use of combat grenades, smoothbore guns (with rubber and metal bullets) and tear gas, they forced demonstrators back to Independence Square. Three hours later, Berkut and MIA troops began storming the Maidan from Institutska Street and Khreschatyk Street (on the side of the European Square). Demonstrators were forced from the intersection of the streets and from the Column of Independence. Resistance concentrated in the vicinity of the stage and the House of Trade Unions. The two parties have remained at these positions to the present. From time to time, attempted storming is carrried out. Water cannons, armoured vehicles, combat grenades and tear gas are used. The other party, a paramilitary formation of protesters, the so called ‘Self-Defence Forces of Maidanʼ, also has guns. Also, the so-called ‘titushkyʼ, i.e. young hooligans employed by the government to confront the EuroMaidan, are involved in the fights. As a result of the clashes, the House of Trade Unions (former headquarters of the Maidan and the biggest point of medical aid, which was evacuated during the night) was gutted by fire. According to official data, 20 people died in the clashes. Unofficially, local doctors claim the number of fatalities could be much higher.
