  • Freedom Square - Kharkiv - The Biggest Parade Ground in Europe

    Freedom Square - Kharkiv - The Biggest Parade Ground in Europe
    Alright I will come out with the outstanding trademark of this landmark right now: It is is the largest parade ground in all Europe - big tush - even bigger tush. Well, this said we have to say of course that parade grounds are not so spectacular in most places of the world, but in the former Soviet Union averything militaristic had a certain sex-appeal. And of course the freedom square is adorned with massive Lenin. One icon of the past, who still feels the force of the future. And Lenin reamins the dominant figure of the square, overlooking it and having a daily market in his very back.
  • Kharkov

    Kharkov
    Well, there are not many cities that have several ways of writing, but in case of Kharkiv, Charkow, Kharkov, Харків or Харьков. It depends where you are from and maybe what political position you have, if you use the Ukrainian, Russian or International version of the second largest city of the Ukraine. And that depicts already the major conflict of the Ukraine.
  • Hanging Out with an Expired SVEMA

    Hanging Out with an Expired SVEMA
    Hi there! It's Yegor speaking, I'm from Kharkov, Ukraine. There are some interesting articles by wil6ka about our town, and they are pretty nice. Our daily environment suffered from imperial influence (before 1917), during the Soviet era and now, surely, global culture is hitting us (good or bad). Kharkov is an eclectic and interesting place but my post covers a hangout place in the outskirts.

    Metallist Kharkov - The real deal
    This was an endeavor of the spontaneous kind, and it was beautiful. Recently I worked Kharkov, the second biggest city in the Ukraine, for to weeks and on a Thursday I was checking the live-results of the German football teams in the UEFA Cup.
  • Charkiw – ein kleiner Einblick in die Psyche der Ostukrainer und die Steinwerdung von Geschichte

    Charkiw – ein kleiner Einblick in die Psyche der Ostukrainer und die Steinwerdung von Geschichte
    (Please note, this article is in another language)
    Im Moment ist die Ukraine im Fokus der Medien. Durch die Unabhängigkeitserklärung der Krim und der Militärpräsenz Russlands ebenda. Nun ist die Krim ein Sonderfall und die Interessen Moskaus sind historisch durchaus nachvollziehbar. Wie sieht es aber mit der Zukunft der Ukraine vor allem in der Beziehung zu Russland aus? Die Verbindung zu Russland und der russischen Kultur ist sehr groß und machen die Identität des Landes und der Leute aus. In beiden Ländern spricht man gerne von Brudervölkern und besonders der Osten der Republik ist sehr russisch geprägt und trägt deshalb zum Grundkonflikt und der Spaltung des Landes bei. Als neutraler Beobachter möchte ich aber ein paar Highlights der Stadt Charkiw auf das rote Samtkissen packen und damit auch die Verbindung der Region zur Sowjetunion darstellen.
