"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.

Ukraine: President Yanukovych refuses to reach a real compromise with protesters, thereby increasing the probability of a military scenario

The calmness on the barricades, which has lasted for the past few days, may soon cease. The President and his party declare readiness to compromise, but in fact they are only giving themselves more time, since no serious steps towards resolving the conflict have been taken. After two months of completely ignoring the protest of one million people, the authorities achieved their goal of radicalising the Maidan. Now, due to their inaction,  the pretence at negotiations and a cynical attitude towards the protesters and international community, the authorities risk provoking a new wave of violence.

The President intentionally lobbied the impracticable and unlawful amnesty law, referred to by human rights defenders as the ‘law on state hostages’. On the other hand, the authorities describe the partial suspension of ‘dictatorship laws’ as a ‘serious compromise’. However, those laws were passed with gross violations of procedures and were not legitimate in terms of public reaction. Prime Minister Mykola Azarov, who fled from Ukraine to Austria by private jet immediately after his resignation, was replaced by Sergei Arbuzov – a person close to the so-called ‘family’ of Yanukovych (which means he is connected with the family business of the President and his sons). Importantly, Azarov, an ardent supporter of the Customs Union for the Ukrainian People, himself chose the European Union, and moved his family and considerable capital of dubious origin to Austria.
