    Parliament pass law that could help Yanukovych avoid justice while hurting Ukrainians

    It is unlikely that President Petro Poroshenko will veto a law that he has himself lobbied for, but that is precisely what civic activists are demanding. Draft law No. 5610, passed by the Verkhovna Rada on March 16, will not help bring ex-president Viktor Yanukovych to justice, while seriously narrowing Ukrainian citizens’ rights, they warn...

    Menacing FSB interrogations of Ukrainian Cultural Centre activists in Russian-occupied Crimea

    Four members of the Ukrainian Cultural Centre have faced FSB interrogation in a move that seems clearly aimed at intimidation and at labelling any pro-Ukrainian activities, however unpolitical, as ‘extremist’. Another activist is facing possible criminal charges for a photo on her social network page with a Ukrainian flag. …read more...

    Russia orchestrates fast-track trial to imprison pro-Ukrainian activist in Crimea

    The trial in Russian-occupied Crimea has begun of Volodymyr Balukh, a Ukrainian from North Crimea whose latest arrest came just a week after he nailed a plaque to his home in honour of activists slain during Euromaidan.
