Kiev/Moscow. Part 1+2

 
Der Majdan Nesaleschnosti ist der zentrale Platz der ukrainischen Hauptstadt Kiew. Denkt man an den Unabhängigkeitsplatz, denkt man heute besonders an jene Protestkundgebungen, die das damalige Regime im Winter 2013 / 14 zu Fall brachten. Die Freude darüber währte jedoch nur kurz. Zu drastisch war, was folgte: die Annexion der Krim, das Blutvergießen in der Ostukraine, die offensichtlich von Russland ausgehende Militäroffensive und die Zusammenstöße in Odessa, bei denen Hunderte verletzt und getötet wurden. In zwei Teilen dokumentiert Kiev/Moscow. die zivilen Unruhen und ihre Folgen, erzählt die Geschichten verschiedener Menschen – von Hoffnung und Erleichterung, von Angst und Tod, von Tränen und neuerlicher Hoffnung.

Maidan Nezalezhnosti is Kiev’s central square. It gave its name to the massive anti-government rallies that took place in the winter of 2013 / 2014 and eventually toppled the regime in the Ukraine. The joy of freedom was quickly overshadowed by the aftermath: the Russian annexation of Crimea, the bloodshed in the east, the lurking warfare lead by Putin and the clashes in Odessa. One way or another, all these events stem from the civil unrest on the Maidan square. Kiev/Moscow. follows the stories of hope, excitement, fear, and death of different people linked to this passionate revolution.
