Ukraine History

A Stronghold of Rulers and Rebels

With the recent death toll jumping to nearly 100 and 1,000 injured, Hrushevskoho Street, one of the strongholds of EuroMaidans three-month-long protests, made headlines around the globe. It was here, on 19 January the countrys stand against government corruption, abuse of power, and the violation of human rights turned from peaceful protest to all-out revolution. Having witnessed much over the years, Hrushevskoho is a street with a history, and not only care of recent days.


Ukraine Today
Acelebrity using their status and intelligence to influence public views and opinion is rarely seen in modern society, even less so in Ukraine. Here, the majority of celebs use their time, effort, and money to enhance or further their career rather than put their name to something that can do good for others. However, as EuroMaidan intensifies, some are making themselves heard and they fall either side of the EuroMaidan divide.
It used to be that when rebellion and revolution occurred, the intellectual, creative, and spiritual elite would be front and centre.


Ukrainian Culture

When Walls Can Talk

People have been writing on walls since the dawn of civilisation, we call it graffiti, and ranges from simple written words to elaborate wall paintings. Sometimes it is merely the creator wanting to leave his or her mark; sometimes there is an underlying social or political reason. And it is due to the latter that graffiti has exploded across Kyiv in recent months. Anti dictator messages aside, we peel back a few layers of paint to look at graffiti in the city in general.

Perhaps, but the very idea of Ukraine and Russia being a \"breadbasket\" is one that disappeared from the gaboll lexicon almost a century ago. I would say that this is a major reversal of the long and ruinous communist period. http://sratmj.com [url=http://cjizwvottmb.com]cjizwvottmb[/url] [link=http://bjldkf.com]bjldkf[/link]

I have flown to Samara as well as to many other russsian citeis from either western european citeisor from other russian airports. Although I generally agree with you with the lack of safety on russian aeroplanes, i have never seen babushkas with hens and so on (certainly not from a flight out of Frankfurt).The habit of praying before a flight is something which is doneprior to start any journeys whether by car, bus, aeroplane or even by foot (if it is a long slog).Do not characterise people the way you do as you do show a lot of ignorance of habits.Laughing and the applause bit happens also when western aeroplanes land, so it is not restrictedto Russian aeroplanes only. I could tell you many stories when travelling on flights originating fromWestern european citeis or USA airports too. You seem to forget that all world is just a village.I am not Eastern European. http://xnamslw.com [url=http://aygdejk.com]aygdejk[/url] [link=http://ulaaeu.com]ulaaeu[/link]

    Ukraine Truth
    Rights We Didnt Know We Had

    Throughout EuroMaidan much has been made of Ukrainians making a stand for their rights. What exactly those rights are were never clearly defined. Ukraine ratified the Universal Declaration of Human Rights in 1952. The first article of the Declaration states all human beings are born free and equal in dignity and rights, they are endowed with reason and conscience, and should act towards one another in a spirit of brotherhood. The ousted and overthrown Ukrainian government showed to the world they dont understand the meaning of these words.

    Pulling Strings
    Located on Hrushevskoho Street the epicentre of EuroMaidan violence, home to battles, blazes and barricades childrens favourite the Academic Puppet Theatre had to shut down in February. Nevertheless, it is getting ready to reopen this March with a renewed repertoire to bring some laughter back to a scene of tragedy. Operating (not manipulating) puppets is a subtle art that can make kids laugh and adults cry. Whats On meets Mykola Petrenko, art director of the Theatre, to learn more about those who pull the strings behind the show.
