‘What’s it like to live in a country, which always expects a war to break out?’ I have asked an old Israeli in the airport queue. He looked at me, surprised.‘We just live and enjoy every day of peace! Besides’, he added, ‘we know that we created the country ourselves, so here is the reason to be jolly…’

The ideas of 1789 – liberty, equality and fraternity – made an indelible impression on the memories of nations and many democratic constitutions to this very day. The same fate also awaits the ideas of the EuroMaidan: liberty, dignity and truth.

Over the past days and weeks, on a quick look at Russian TV channels (I have one even in my hotel at Strasbourg not to relax from the disturbing complexities of our life in the EU and in the vicinity – especially after comparison of Russian TV with BBC News or French TV) it was difficult to get rid of a déjà vu feeling.

What could be a proper metaphor for a unilateral war – the war that has been waged in the void and with much sound and fury, yet that has no real adversaries? The war waged by the self-chasing ghost?

The size and persistence of the protest movement that started in November has been amazing and admirable. I think it has greatly surprised not only almost all international observers but also most Ukrainian political and civil society activists

What is happening in Ukraine is a direct reaction to the lack of consideration of the authorities for the aspirations of its citizens to be part of Europe and to live in a country governed in accordance with democratic principles and respect for human rights
