Interview with Dmytro Fedorenko, after Minsk 2

One year ago we talked for the first time with Dmytro Fedorenko. He lived in Kiev and at that time the protest movement on Maidan square was making headlines all over the world. After the first talk there was a good reason for a second talk. After that interview the situation got worse as 100 protesters were killed by snipers. The president disappeared overnight. It was no reason to be happy; the people mourned about the victims of the snipers. In fact, a period of peace never came as Russia…

Timothy Snyder – Ukraine, from Propaganda to Reality

It is tradition to publish lists of some sorts at the end of the year. Radio On will not present a list of what we think were our ten best programs, because we think all our programs were our ten best programs; neither do we have a top ten of quotes, songs or predictions. One series of programs that ran all through the year 2014 were our talks with Dmytro Fedorenko in Kiev. It started during the uprisings on the Maidan square. After that we heard about the killings, the…

Rinus van Alebeek – Overseas – interview w/ Dmytro Fedorenko, Life in Kiev during Wartime

This is the latest interview with Dmytro Fedorenko. We talked with him for the first time at the beginning of the year 2014 when big black smoke was rising up from the Maidan square. It was not our last interview. Dmytro was active during the fights, and saw the victims of the February killings by the Janukovich snipers at the distance of his hand. We spoke with him when Crimea was annexed and when war broke out in the east of Ukraine. We heard him after the downing of MH17….

Rinus Radio Broadcast Company – ft Interview with Dmytro Fedorenko about East Ukraine

A couple of weeks ago I (Rinus Van Alebeek) stayed some days in the Oranien Studio. That was a good chance to interrupt the regular programs and go live on air. Over the years our archive with CD’s, Vinyl given by friends and Records found in the trash has grown extensively. I decided to play this music, and act as a normal DJ, given information on the tracks and, if possible, on the releases themselves. But it was also time to connect with our friend Dmytro Fedorenko in Kiev. We…

The Second Interview with our Man in Kiev

The second interview with Dmytro is done in two parts. Do we need to say more about him? From the interview you will learn that he is at the protester’s camp every day and takes part in the protests in one way or an other. The interview goes on for almost an hour. We hear about historical (Stalinist) origins of the cultural and political division between east and west-Ukraine and how this has an impact on the protest movement. The point of the radical opposition gets explained; the perception of…

While working on the interview with our man in Kiev

Strange things keep on happening. The first transmission of the first interview got interrupted after 23 minutes. Radio On remained braindead for at least ten minutes. The second broadcast got interrupted as well. Both interruptions resulted in dead air, and a fair loss of listeners. During the interview on Saturday 8. February the line went dead after 14 minutes. The rest of the day it was impossible to get a live program out. It is of course all a coincidence and everything will be fine tomorrow. We will continue our…
