This Land of Ours That is Not Ours,
Marco Kesseler

Following the violent clashes between the Euromaidan protest movement and Yanukovych’s government forces, Kiev stood waiting, gathering the thoughts of the thousands, and rebuilding the barricades. Beyond the frontline conflicts that dominated the news, the self-sustained framework of the Maidan brought a shifting community together as each day more people arrived in the city.

 

These quieter moments, observed in the calm before the storm, reflect the growing uncertainty of a nation in flux as days and months pass.   The Maidan remains central to the revolution, while the epicentre of the conflict continues to shift, moving south and east, with Russia’s growing involvement fracturing the outline of Ukraine’s land once again.
