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.

Apart from observation missions and the implementation of the statutory objectives, the Foundation has been actively involved in the assistance of Ukraine following the EuroMaidan developments.

Thus far, we have managed to render assistance to the injured Maidan activists, by financing their surgery, treatment, medical care, and providing psychological support. Using the donations received, we have funded, among others, a prosthetic eye and the surgery of the Cherkasy activist Anatoliy Zaremba and a prosthetic hand for a EuroMaidan member, Andrey Zhupnik in the amount of $10,000. The Foundation has been taking care of five families in Poland who decided to leave the Crimea. The support includes the provision of accommodation, food, access to education for children and support in their adaptation to life under new conditions.

For the purposes of the Ukrainian armed forces, guarding the eastern border, we also handed over uniforms and life-protection means.

The Foundation organises international observeration missions, which document, among other things, human rights violations and violations of electoral rights. The Foundation focuses on the monitoring of socio-political situations, especially during presidential, parliamentary and local elections in the post-Soviet area.

Our observers monitored, in particular, the election in Ukraine in 2010 and court trials of oppositionists in Kazakhstan following the tragic events in Zhanaozen. From January to April, 2014, our volunteers were also present in Ukraine, where they registered incidents of human rights violations during the events related to the EuroMaidan, as well as Russia‘s intervention in the Crimea.

We are currently organising an international mission to monitor Ukrainian presidential elections of 2014, with the participation of observers from the European Union.

Anna, the wife of Ukrainian army soldier Alexander Boyko, has approached the Open Dialog Foundation for help. Anna and Alexander along with their three children were forced to leave the Crimea and move to the mainland of Ukraine due to the fact that the lives and well-being of military personnel and their families became endangered. They were subjected to constant moral pressure and threats from Russian invaders.

One of the main problems and difficulties experienced by the family relates to the provision of medical care for their 12- year-old son, Pavel. On 17 February, 2014, the boy was diagnosed with type 1 diabetes, he is now insulin-dependent. The family is engaged in registration of his status of a ‘disabled child’, which will allow him to receive welfare benefit in the future amounting to 947 hryvnias (60 euros). However, these amounts are clearly insufficient, as in order to prevent a sharp decrease in his blood-sugar level and, potentially, a diabetic coma, it is necessary to regularly measure his blood-sugar level with the use of testing strips, on which the family spend 75 euros per month. In connection with the aforementioned circumstances, the family addressed the Open Dialog Foundation with a request for help.

Needs of the family:

In addition to their need of finding jobs and securing permanent housing, the family is facing the problem of ensuring medical treatment for their son who has been diagnosed with diabetes. In order todothis, they need:

  • Testing strips in order to measure blood sugar level;
  • Needles forthe insulin pen with whichinsulinis administered;
  • Insulin preparations: Actrapid (three or four injections per day) and Protafan (two injections a day).

The Open Dialog Foundation has transferred 2,000 hryvnias to Anna for the purchase of medicines for her son; still, the financial aid only covers expenses of temporary means of Pavel’s treatment.  In order to bring about and maintain remission, as well as to avoid the consequences of disabling consequences, Pavel needs therapy with the help of the Paradigm VEO insulin pump, which automatically shuts off the flow of insulin, preventing a coma. The cost of such a pump is over 50,000 hryvnias (approx. 4,300 euros). It was also recommended that Pavel undergoes spa treatment for children with diabetes.
