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.

Support to the families of the injured

Since the beginning of March, the Open Dialog Foundation has been running a project providing support to the families of the injured who fought on Maidan and are now receiving treatment in Polish hospitals.

As part of the project, we help the relatives obtain a Schengen visa, cover the costs of flight tickets, as well as organise accommodation and provide them with volunteer help here in Ukraine.

Yesterday, we transported the twentieth person to Poland. She is a mother of a seventeen-year-old who is in a critical condition and currently receiving treatment in hospital in Katowice. For the 50-year-old Tetiana, who had never previously been abroad, the very journey from Kiev alone, was truly stressful. We met her at a small bus station somewhere in a distant suburb of the city in the evening. We had a lot of time to kill before her departure, so we sat down in an empty waiting area. She spoke and I listened. She recounted that her son had been serving in a self-defense unit for many months. She told me how she would worry about his safety and whether he had enough to eat or somewhere to shelter from the cold. She recounted how anxious she had been every time she dialed his phone number and how she would feel when he picked up. How she called him on 18 February, the night of the assault on Maidan, and he spoke to her whilst standing under a burning barricade and finally, how two days later, it had been a paramedic from a field hospital who had answered the phone instead of her son.

She also expressed her gratitude towards the people who have helped and are still helping her. I say a huge “thank you” to all: volunteers, people from the foundation, hosts ready to share their apartments with those in need, employees of embassies and consulates, doctors and all those who have donated money. I thank all of them too!
