During most of the time of the 4 days we spent in Kyiv, I had the feeling/thought that it was a privilege to be able to be so close to what is happening in Ukraine these days, and because of this the feeling of a deep responsability to explain it, to communicate it, made roots on me. Even with the few resources we have, we need to contribute to develop networks, partnerships, awareness that may contribute to a real, democratic and sustainable peace in Ukraine

I visited Ukraine 2 years ago, where I met NGO representatives, too. This time, April 2015, I was amazed how many active citizens engage in voluntary community work. I was also relieved to hear that human rights activists from Ukraine and from Russia continue their invaluable work hand-in-hand. Therefore, it is imperative to share all the information that we had and will have from the ground and recieve comments and reports from volunteers and activists, who day-by-day make huge efforts to build peace.

“Since the first day in Kyiv, I realised that the reality of the country and its people is different in the field that in the media. Also there is another reality in politics. For what I saw talking to volunteers in Russia, the reality is also different there. As usual, all the problems are generalized by the media. It is true there is a problem between Russia and Ukraine, but I felt that most of the people are just not-well informed. Both governments are taking advantatge of mass media. That is why I think it is very important to communicate, through this blog the reality of Ukraine as far as we know. Because most of the people want this war to go to an end. So the purpose of this blog is to communicate to the rest of the world about the situation in Ukraine but also to communicate to the ukrainians and russians themselves about the reality of the conflict.”
This visit was only possible thanks to the hosting and the organisational efforts by Alternative-V, who helped us in all aspects to meet organisations and relevant institutions.
