The aim of the platform, administered by the Open Dialog Foundation, is to provide to up date information on human rights violations in Ukraine.

"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.

Statement by Open Dialog Foundation in relation to the organisation of a conference with representatives of the electoral committees of candidates for Ukraine’s President

The Open Dialog Foundation is a non-governmental and apolitical organisation which precipitates that its activities do not serve any country in which it is present nor the interests of any particular party or politician.

The presidential elections to be held in Ukraine on 25th May 2014 are a major step on the path to the country’s stabilisation. We believe the Ukrainians have the right to freely elect their future leader. Because of this, we are organising an electoral observatory mission.

The Open Dialog Foundation considers that the initiative of the EuroMaidan Warsaw Organisational Committee to invite the representatives of all electoral committees to Warsaw is right and serves the purpose of exercising electoral rights in Ukraine – both the right to be elected and to vote in the elections. Thanks to this, Ukrainians living in Poland have a chance to personally verify the presidential candidates. It is the Foundation’s intention to facilitate a meeting between representatives of the committees and media.

We are of the opinion that it would be an unacceptable practice to selectively invite candidates for Ukraine’s Presidency. We understand, at the same time, that the views of representatives of the various parties may face both approval and objections. The struggle for political freedom is one of the key areas of the Foundations’ activities and any manifestations thereof, protests included, within the bounds of Polish and international law, are actions we approve of.

We wish to emphasise that the support offered by Poles to Ukrainians over the past months through our Foundation, has always been received warmly by representatives of all political circles in Ukraine.
