"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.

The policy of eliminating independent journalism in Ukraine January-February 2014

As a result of the events connected with the mass protests in Ukraine, in two months (January and February 2014), one journalist was killed and approx. 130 sustained wounds and injures of varying severity.


The revolutionary events in Ukraine were characterised by three major phases of exacerbated confrontation between protesters and authorities:

• 30 November, 2013 - 1 December, 2013 – dispersal of students on Independence Square and the brutal beating of protesters near the building of the Presidential Administration of Ukraine.

• 19 January, 2014 – 22 January, 2014 – clashes on Hrushevskoho Street and the first reported fatalities of the clashes.

• 18 February, 2014 – 20 February, 2014 – the storming of Independence Square and mass shooting on protesters in the centre of Kiev.

Each of these phases was accompanied by mass violence against journalists - they were fired at with non-lethal weapons and firearms, beaten, many have suffered injuries from explosions of stun grenades and the use of tear gas. As a result, one journalist was killed, more than two hundred sustained injuries. In most cases, force against media workers was applied intentionally in order to hinder their professional activity and prevent them from reporting on the events.

Despite the fact that democratic forces have come to power in Ukraine, crimes against journalists have not been fully investigated, and the perpetrators remain unpunished.

Our previous report was dedicated to journalists who suffered during the period between 30 November, 2013 and 1 December, 2013. This report provides information on the oppression of journalists in the following two phases of exacerbated confrontation - in January and February 2014.
