"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.

Victory Day in Kharkiv

Kharkiv did not surprise me at all during the morning. The celebrations started by the Slava memorial, where flowers were placed and official speeches were made. Separatists most probably hoped it would be their day of triumph. Dobkin could only say, in the meantime, that “the greatest victories for us are yet to come".

Even though communists and, generally speaking, separatists, had some representation, they had to stand in line after the Ukrainian flags. It was only after the official part that they spread a two-hundred metre black and orange ribbon and marched to Lenin’s monument where they were joined by veterans with a portrait of Stalin.

The traditional slogans, "Fascism will not pass” and an occasional “Thank you grandpas for the victory” were accompanied by new ones: “We will not forgive Odessa” and “Slovyansk – a hero city”. But as before, the separatists of Kharkiv are a disappointment to the Donetsk leaders. Not a single yellow and blue flag was pulled down and trampled upon. With their shared belief in the illegality of the government in Kiev and that their right to speak Russian is limited, they keep repeating that they are Ukrainians and that Ukraine should be one. I like the separatism of Kharkiv.
