Wenn du in diese Richtung gehst, siehst du eine Gruppe Männer, die Molotow-Cocktails vorbereiten. Du musst ihnen das vorbeibringen.” Continue reading

We are not extremists! Open letter of the Ukrainian scholars, scientists, artists, doctors, lawyers, pedagogues and journalists to their fellow citizens and to the international community.

In the past several days, the protests of Ukrainians against the policies of the Ukrainian government have taken on a new quality. The peaceful demonstrations turned into a forceful confrontation between the protesters and the police. For the past six days, in the government quarter at the heart of Kyiv, on Hrushevskyi Street, genuine battles between the demonstrators and the police have been going on, with hundreds of wounded and several deaths.
