"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.

Ukrainian World

At Nowy Świat No. 63 in Warsaw, the “Ukrainian World” centre has opened. The centre provides Ukrainians living in Poland with legal and psychological assistance.

“Ukrainian World“ is a support centre which was established following the tragic developments of Maidan. Weekly consultations and meetings are held there during which, we help people to find jobs in Poland or schools for the refugees’ children.

All psychological and legal assistance is rendered in both the Ukrainian and Russian languages.

Natalia Basko

Psychological help is extended to people having suffered traumatic experiences. Support to wounded and injured Maidan activists in Polish hospitals is offered by Natalia Basko. Natalia is apsychologist by profession and a Ukrainian who has been living in Poland for years. Her task is to visit the wounded in hospitals. Help is often expressed through the simplest acts. It is important to continuously monitor the patients’ needs and convey feedback to hospital staff. The psychological help is also about maintaining contact with the wounded ones, winning their trust, accompanying them at hard times – before and after medical treatments and operations. Her command of Ukrainian helps a lot. Natalia attends patients’ medical check-ups, acting as a translator during operations, treatments and medical check-ups. Help also includes the purchase of prostheses and medicines.

The legal assistance that we offer comprises consultations on the refugee procedure, extension of temporary stay in Poland, work permits, as well as matters of marriages to foreigners, parental rights, setting up and running a business and signing tenancy contracts. Our volunteers also act as intermediaries during communication with the embassy regarding passports and visas.

The “Ukrainian World” also organises workshops, individual and group meetings on active and effective job search in Poland. Our aim is to provide help with regard to adaptation to new conditions of life in a foreign country.

In addition to the Foundations’ staff, volunteers are on stand-by at the Centre, helping with translations, finding accommodation and collections of clothes, medicines and other basic necessities.
