A long-distance war diary. In 2013, in the heart of Kyiv, protest erupted against a corrupt Ukrainian government. The author turned his eyes on to events as they unfolded. Selected incidents were recorded, in verse, from when the protest began, up until the time when the conflict in east Ukraine arrived at a stalemate, in 2015.

‘Twists of east European fatalistic irony woven into stories from the battle zones, and from the political arena.’

‘An angry dance through the barricades.’

‘A voice of solidarity with those fighting against invaders, infiltrators and collaborators.’
