EuroMaidan Part Three


Thanks to https://www.facebook.com/EuroMaydan for the picture. Whatever happens, that tree (and everything it stands for and against) will be remembered in Ukraine’s history.

Dancing for their Dignity

Ever since the EuroMaidan protests erupted, my social-media world has been rocked by a hug wave of Ukrainianess. There are photos, cartoons, press clippings and academic essays. There are warnings, messages of support and others of indignation. There are pleas for help, rumors, official announcements, unofficial announcements and diplomatic statements. There is anger, disgust, shame but also hope, pride and a remarkable sense of pride, determination and optimism.

I wake up and Ukraine is on the radio. I go to the gym and sea of blue and yellow flags is showing on the news. I walk past the European Parliament and find people wrapped in Ukrainian flags.

It’s been  quite a spectacle, and like never before Ukrainians have shown that they are capable of anything. They have shown that Ukraine is, like always, a place where you can expect the unexpected and although it is exhilarating to watch, I have to admit, it is equally confusing and impossible to predict.

So, I decided to go.

Partly to show solidarity with my friends in Kyiv and partly for adventure, I had to see what was really going on in my favourite city. I couldn’t miss it.

Each day this week, I will post a short video to share what I saw.

PS, I apologise about the music. I’m still a ‘rookie’ video editor and these are my first projects.

PPS, It is not my intention to comment on the situation in Ukraine or to offer my opinion here. I have an opinion, and I’m happy to share it with anyone that asks,  but not here. That’s not what this site is for.

Mini Look Kiev

“Because of our sentiments to the city and the incoming spring, we bring you a miniature day in a life of Kiev.”

The Making:
“We shot MiniLook Kiev with Canon 550D, during 5 days and 2 nights, shoted over 25,000 frames,
from all of them we used about 4,500. The post-production was the hardest part of the creation, it took us a few good months, but finally it’s done!”

Video: The Pushcha-Voditsa forest tram

The Pushcha-Voditsa tram was described by one online nutcase as ‘the most incredible tram journey in the world’. I wouldn’t go that far, but it is quite cool. It leaves Kyiv and chugs off through some forests before arriving at a small, sleep yet beautiful spa town.

Kyiv trams were built in Czechoslovakia in the bronze age, they are almost always driven by tough looking women, they are cold, they are uncomfortable and they are slow. However, this just adds to the experience.

You can read more about the journey and the town here and view more pictures here.

Video: Fairy tale of Troeshina

A Ukrainian woman has transformed her depressed Soviet-style floor into a fairy tale. The 13th floor of house 26 in Kiev’s dormintory subburb of Troeshina attracts many visitors. Some are horrified by the scene, others impressed.

Video: Winter clothes from Europe

Medio Oktober. Ukrainians are preparing for the winter.

The Shulyavski second hand market in Kiev is crowded with people on a Wednessday afternoon. Dozens of people dig through the heaps of clothes in search of a bargain.

The garments origin from Europe and were donated by charity organizations. Among the fur loving Ukrainians fur coats are especially popular around this time of the year.
