During the previous year the situation was peaceful and safe here, no mass protest actions or violence took place. We organized several international activities in the West of Ukraine in spring and summer of 2014-2016 with over 80 participants from all over Europe. Nobody experienced problems during the travel to the project venues or during the activities themselves.
