The shelling of Kharkiv resumed today. The strikes were few, but they did happen. The muscovites shelled different parts of the city. At night, they attacked Selyshche Zhukovskoho. Residential houses, Kharkiv Aviation Institute buildings, the fire department, and cars were damaged. The muscovites are targeting educational institutions and State Emergency Service units. Our team of civilian infrastructure destruction documentarians has written about this before. During the day, the ruscists fired on Saltivka and Pyatykhatky, injuring three people. In the evening, there were strikes in the northern outskirts of Kharkiv.
Two weeks after the start of the journey, the package with 10 helmets and two flags of Croatia and Slovenia reached its destination in Kharkiv. Since most MMIC members here had already got their helmets, we decided to share 8 helmets with civilian volunteers who provide humanitarian aid to people in the most war-affected areas of Kharkiv city and region.
I grew up in a grey rectangular city built by dreamers playing with gigantic concrete blocks. The dreamers imagined a purposeful communal living where workers together would build a glorious future without some negligible material things distracting them on the way. The future-builders would look out of the enormous three-panel windows of their apartments, see and greet each other. They would spend minimal allotted time in their tiny toilets and kitchens conjoined with bathtubs. These were all great dreams of innovators later called “Constructivists”, but these dreams did not belong to the little girl who loved fairy tales.
Here, we will show you some partially destroyed medical facilities without referencing their names and locations in order to illustrate the problem. We have captured every case of hospital destruction below in photos and on video. Each case is involved in criminal proceedings.
The amount of attacks was about the same as yesterday. The muscovites continue to shell Kharkiv, damaging houses, causing deaths and injuries. The northern suburbs of the city are under heavy fire.
Russia is systematically and deliberately destroying Ukrainian science.
Our special attention is focused on proper documentation of continued airstrikes of residential areas, schools, kindergartens, hospitals, historical monuments, and other civilian life support objects.
For the first time in 13 days, it’s quiet in the city. It feels weird. The pause allows for more active evacuation of those who have decided to leave the city and to bring in supplies for the military, medicine, food, and more. As city residents have noted, thanks to the lower intensity of shelling, deliveries of food and other necessities are gradually improving.
Today’s shelling was more intense than yesterday. Hot neighborhoods again: Saltivka, Northern Saltivka, Rohan, Horizon, New Houses and the village of Zhukovsky. According to the City Council, the restoration of heat in the village of Zhukovsky, in KHAI, in Pomirky, as well as in MZhK “Internationalist” (Krychevsky) will only be possible after the war. Communications there have been destroyed.
In two waves this morning (February 28, 2022), Russian forces fired artillery and multiple launch rocket systems (known as “Grad”) on my neighborhood Saltivka—a regular residential neighborhood, the largest in Ukraine.
There is virtually no industry here, only a few small-company offices.

Before we started cooperation with Kurve Wustrow the topic of non violent activism and non violent communication was present in SIS curriculum only in Zbignew Bujak’s lectures and workshops. During SIS 5 it has become the main focus of the school.
On November 29-30, 2019, the Second International Security Forum “Fight for Minds in the Time of Hybrid Wars” will take place in Kharkiv. We invite you to discuss different issues of hybrid threats, ideology, public opinion manipulation, promotion techniques of enemy’s ideas under democratic rule and information society.
We found a common thread in the importance of role models for women in Ukraine, success stories and most importantly the unique and oftentimes greatly misunderstood aspects of gender, and specifically gender stereotypes, in Ukraine.
We feel that Kharkiv can become a place where we might discuss the most actual issues concerning the future of Europe and the world as a whole.
