An acclaimed novelist offers Ukrainian dispatches from the heart of Kiev
-16Â°C, sunlight, silence. I drove the children to school, then went to see the revolution. I walked between the tents. Talked with revÂolutionaries. They were weary today. The air was thick with the smell of old campfires.
Ukraine Diaries is acclaimed writer Andrey Kurkovâs first-hand account of the ongoing crisis in his country. From his flat in Kiev, just 500 yards from Independence Square, Kurkov can smell the burning barricades and hear the sounds of grenades and gunshot. Kurkovâs diaries begin on the first day of the pro-European protests in November, and describe the violent clashes in the Maidan, the impeachment of Yanukovcyh, Russiaâs annexation of Crimea, and the separatist uprisings in the east of Ukraine. Going beyond the headlines, they give vivid insight into what itâs like to live throughâand try to make sense ofâtimes of intense political unrest.
