When Oleg Liashko brought a cow to the Parliament, ate soil at the Verkhovna Rada booth and walked the city with a pitchfork, this was viewed as political extravagance – a trick that the smallest fraction of the electorate would fall for. However the results of the past elections prove that the main parliamentary rascal has a significant political perspective. The politician, who according to some experts, was under the patronage of Yanukovich’s team for the role of the oppositional clown, has already stepped out of this frame.

Volodymyr Honcharovskiy, a hero of Instytutska

During my stay in Germany last weekend for the conference dedicated to Ukraine and Euromaidan, I had an opportunity to visit one of the heroes of Instytutska at a military hospital.

The name of this courageous man is Volodymyr Honcharovskiy.

He was wounded on February 19th on Instytutska—he took two bullets to his spine and was paralyzed. The German doctors gave him no chance of recovery. However, after another medical examination, they noticed that Volodymyr had feeling in his right hand, and operated on him immediately. Since then, Volodymyr has been recovering by leaps and bounds. Not only is he able to take a couple of steps by himself, but he is also exercising on training equipment, especially on a stationary bike. The doctors are saying that his speedy recovery is some kind of miracle. Continue reading

Die Geschichte eines Helden

Quelle: EuromaidanPR auf Facebook

Viele verletzte Maidan-Aktivisten werden im Ausland behandelt. So auch Vladimir Goncharovsky, der in einem deutschen Bundeswehrkrankenhaus operiert wurde und jetzt dort eine Therapie durchläuft.

Am vergangenen Wochenende haben wir, einige Aktivisten des “EuromaidanPR auf Deutsch”, die Möglichkeit gehabt, Wolodymyr in Deutschland zu besuchen.

Er wurde in der Instytutska Str. am 20. Februar von zwei Kugeln in die Wirbelsäule getroffen und war gelähmt. Die deutschen Ärzte waren überzeugt, dass er für den Rest seines Lebens behindert bleiben wird. Nur zufällig wurde bemerkt, dass Wolodymyr noch ein bisschen Gefühl in seinem rechten Arm hatte, und er wurde danach dann mehrfach an der Wirbelsäule, beiden Beinen und am rechten Arm operiert.

Seit dem geht es Volodymyr mit jedem Tag besser und besser. Selbst die Ärzte sind erstaunt, dass er schon langsam laufen, viele Übungen machen und unter anderem am Heimtrainer Fahrrad fahren kann. Längere Strecken schafft Wolodymyr nur mit dem Rollstuhl, aber er hat sich ein Ziel gesetzt, schon in einem Monat nur mit einem Rollator zu laufen, und den Rollstuhl nie wieder benutzen zu müssen.

On Truth and Iniquity: Results of proceedings in the case against Mykhaylo Havryliuk’s abusers

Today the Pechersk District Court heard  two cases regarding abuse of power and office by internal military officers D.V. Kravets and L.V. Lomonos who,  in performance of their duties, committed unlawful acts degrading human dignity and committed violence and torture against Mykhaylo Havryliuk during the events of Euromaidan. The case resonated widely after a video of the brutal treatment of Havryliuk was made public.

Both court hearings ended with the approval of settlement agreements, a one year probation period with a prohibition against engaging in law enforcement activities, and an obligation to apologize to the victim in writing.

Reading between lines, the case materials reveal an impressive ability to forgive.
