From mass protests to invasion and now on the verge of all-out war, the latest news from Ukraine comes out almost hourly and too fast to analyze. Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter have become great resources to get the latest news, and today Iâ€™m going to share some great resources to help you stay up-to-date:
Euromaidan PR – http://euromaidanpr.com/
This site has a great group of volunteers who are actively translating the latest news from Ukrainian and other websites into English, and quickly posts them not only on their website but their Facebook and Twitter pages as well. If were to only follow one source for news, this would be it.
Voices of Ukraine – http://maidantranslations.com/
If youâ€™re looking for a more daily analysis wrapped up in a single post, then this would be your best bet. The Military Blog summary by Dmitry Tymchuk is done fairly well. The posts go online at their website as well as Facebook and Twitter.
Both sites are actively looking for help translating articles from Ukrainian (and some others) to English. If you can spare some time, check out their Facebook page for requests to translate.
VICE News has a very comprehensive on-the-ground video series on Ukraine since late in the Maidan, and is still being updated! Its main correspondent Simon Ostrovsky made recent news being a captor in Sloviansk, and is returning to complete the series. Below is a playlist of all the videos so far (some might be out of order, so please check accordingly):
Espresso TV – http://espreso.tv/
This internet TV station sprang up back in November in order to broadcast the Euromaidan protests worldwide. It broadcasts live.
Hromadske.TV – http://hromadske.tv/
An internet TV station started by many former TVi journalists who quit the TV channel last April after it was dubiously handed over to Russian oligarch Konstantin Kagalovsky, a Yanukovych ally. It broadcasts live.
Spilno.TV â€“ http://spilno.tv
Another great internet TV station, features a video playlist of stories to browse, as well as a live stream.
