UKR Situations + Resources v.1



{ Eastern UKR map from WSJ article, red dots – areas of unrest }

We guess it’s been seriously on the brink of war for some time, but this morning’s news of helicopters shot down over Slavyansk seems to indicate a frightening escalation, with Putin saying “Ukraine’s action against Slavyansk has destroyed the last hope of the Geneva agreement ” ( Guardian ).

Time to create a little UKR resource page, and hope that it helps citizens, peace activists and journalists in their efforts to pull this story away from the trajectory of the superpowers’ agendas, nationalistic divisions and conflict zones.
