Translated by Ollie Richardson & Angelina Siard


Information about the Ukrainian Svetlana Pikta, who opposed the renaming of streets within the framework of the law on decommunization, was placed on the database of the scandalous Ukrainian website “Mirotvorets”.

According to the Ukrainian publication “”, Pikta collected signatures against the renaming of streets in honor of participants of OUN-UPA.

On the website “Mirotvorets” the woman is accused of “complicity in terrorism”, posting “anti-Ukrainian propaganda”, and interrupting the implementation of the law on decommunization. The personal data of Pikta was also published on the website.

The website “Mirotvorets” is known for scandalous publications in which it makes public the data of journalists, militiamen from the self-proclaimed DPR and LPR, and other citizens who it calls “traitors of the Motherland“. In the spring it published lists of journalists, including foreign ones who obtained accreditation of the DPR and LPR, specifying their contact information, after which threats arrived to some of them.

Dunja Mijatoviç, then the OSCE Representative on freedom of the media, called the publication “a disturbing step that can put the safety of journalists under threat much more”. The actions of the owners of the website “Mirotvorets” were criticized also by the Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova. She called the publication “a direct appeal for reprisals of journalists”.

In May, 2015, in Ukraine the law adopted by the Verkhovna Rada “on condemnation of the communistic and Nazi regimes”, forbidding the propaganda of Soviet symbols, became effective. It assumes, in particular, the renaming of cities and streets called in honor of Soviet statesmen.

The president of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko in May, 2015, signed a law that provides OUN-UPA the status of “fighters for independence” of Ukraine and the right to social guarantees for its participants. Moscow condemned this the decision, noting that “Ukraine is a country where neo-Nazis moved from words to actions and killed thousands of civilians”, and that “such actions should be given an adequate assessment at the international level”. The glorification of UPA and its leaders — Stepan Bandera and Roman Shukhevych sparks criticism from many veterans of the Great Patriotic War.

Member of C14 Evgeny Karas: “Meanwhile, the separatist brood has new depths of threats

Congratulations to the person on the public enemies list of the center ‘Mirotvorets’. What it wanted, it received.

Now problems in banks, loans, travel abroad and much more are guaranteed.

Separatist! If you are lucky to live in the concentration camp of Plotnitsky but in peaceful quiet Kiev – then be quiet. Otherwise you’ll have to flee the country.”
