Also on Foreign Notes, a post on the dispersal of a protest by Chernobyl clean-up vets [5] in Donetsk, which resulted in the death of one protester. Ukrainiana re-posts [6] videos from the celebration of Tymoshenko's birthday in front of the Kyiv detention center she's kept in – as well as photos of the Spanish villa where the ex-PM and her family reportedly vacationed a year before.
