On May 1, 2014, during a May Day parade of some 100 000 workers carrying banners “Putin is right,” “Proud of the country” and “Let’s support decisions of our president,” seven brave people marched through the central streets singing the Ukrainian anthem and carrying a giant flag of Ukraine. They were handing out anti-imperialist leaflets saying ‘Enough of raising the empire and resurrecting the USSR’. Four were arrested by the police.

Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using ťhe chance - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you). We are now $5,000 short of our financial goal and need your support to continue working. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!
