Ukraine | Persecution of journalists in Ukraine

The suppression of opposition journalists has long been the hallmark of the Kiev regime.

Ukraine | Unnoticed searches in Ukraine: a month later

On March 12 a number of Ukrainian opposition activists were searched by state security of Kiev regime. Witnesses state that political police conducted them in unusually correct manner, policemen threw up evidences only in one case in Kharkov. But it was a large nationally coordinated wave of searches organized for a first time after half and year pause.

It is true everybody is tired with Ukraine – supporters of a local reactionary regime, as well as its opponents round the world. Even nationally led persecution campaign looks like routine news. But we must remember struggle against reaction needs everyday attention. Any reactionary step could not be left and missed if we want to change a world for better.
