03.13.2014 Ukraine. The Martha Lane

The Maidan is a socio-political phenomenon in modern Ukraine which is characterized by confluence of big groups of people of various nationalities, age, faiths, educational and professional level on a main square of the Ukrainian capital for expression of a peace protest of citizens against the policy pursued by executive and legislative branches of the power, and is concrete, the president, parliament and the government. The Kiev Maidan is characterized by mass character, enthusiasm and high organization of its participants. Thus the most part of citizens has no mercenary motives. Their protest has ideological, patriotic character.

In release "The Maidan field mail" on website UkraFil it was reported about creation on place of Independence of Kiev by group of volunteers the charitable post service for the purpose of the organization of the free post message as between participants of a peace protest on the Maidan and beyond its limits, and with various government bodies and officials. In February the project existed only a week. Bloody opposition in the center of Kiev practically buried it. All property of volunteers was lost in fire, and the post service almost broke up. However, the need for it not only didn't disappear, but also gained special relevance.

At the end of February the volunteers gathered again to revive a charitable event taking into account new realities. The group of young people of 5-7 volunteers which leaders are Lvov natives Marta Ch. and Yury R. became initiators of the project. Having held long consultations with "Ukrposhta's" employees and representatives of club of philatelists, children organized the real post service in field conditions of a live Maidan. At the expense of personal means and donations are made the cancels and tampons, are prepared the envelopes, are are published the local stamps-labels, are made the overprints on the ukrainian definitive stamps. The main distinctive feature of post service of Maidan is a free mail service. Anyone can receive free of charge clean sheets of paper for the letter, envelopes with stamps in advance pasted on them and, through field mail, to send letters, as on the Maidan territory, and across Ukraine, and sometimes to abroad.

Revival of the Maidan field post took place on March 1. This date is also was the First Day of the memorable issue "Maidan Tragedy". From this point the post service functions daily. It settles down depending on weather or near the central entrance of the central post office, or near a subway. Schedule of its work: from 12 to 16 on weekdays and from 11 to 17 on the days off. Daily through field mail passes more than 100 departures. The volunteers are going to work disinterestedly until while there is exists a tent town on the Maidan.

For the past two weeks from the moment of opening of the field mail several hundreds wishing have already used these charitable services. At website UkraFil’s forum in section "Maidan Field Mail" are presented some photos of the improvised post office, its organizers and participants, and also a fragments of correspondence which passed through field mail.

P.S. The field mail is such type of post service in the peace time which organization of work is carried out by means of unusual post departments.
P.S.S. "Any good deed shouldn't remain unpunished".
