Water for life in Palestine
Al Rashayda, Sussya, Hamsa
By Arturas Morozovas
01 Oct 2015

Water is essential for every human being. For Palestinians that live in Area C of the occupied West Bank (an area that is under full Israeli military and civil control), water is also a necessary tool to stay on their land and continue the life style that was inherited by them from generations past.

 

Three water stories of three different families across the West Bank (Northern Jordan Valley, Bethlehem area in the Central West Bank and the southern hills of Susiya) are featured in the pictures.

 

All three families have at least one thing in common – their existence on the land is highly dependent on their access to water. Getting water is the central aspect of their daily routines – be it bringing it by expensive water trucks to remote locations of Al Rashayda or carefully managing rainwater collected during winter in Susiya – without this access to water families would be left with no choice but to move from their original places of living and look for other locations. None of the families expressed a wish to do so.

 

As each day passes this access to water becomes more and more limited as the Israeli occupation authorities control and restrict Palestinian development of necessary infrastructure to access water in Area C of the West Bank. Further more the Oslo II Accords leave Palestinians with a very little portion of what is supposed to be equally shared water resources. As a result, the dry fields of eggplants in Hamsa are getting dryer and there is little hope that the situation will change to the better soon.

 

 

Separate descriptions of each family:

Al Rashayda’s dry sands: The young family of Farhan is living in Al Rashayda, a remote Bedouin village located in Bethlehem area , the West Bank. The extensive family includes Farhan, his pregnant wife expecting twins, his two sons, old parents and his brother’s family (30 people in total). The family shares a large heard of sheep, goats and camels that together require a high amount of water. As the Israeli authorities restrict the building of necessary infrastructure to secure water for their basic needs, Farhan’s family depends on rainwater collected during winter, the amount of which highly depends on weather conditions, and water bought from private providers in nearby villages that bring water to Farhan by tractors or water trucks. Each cubic meter of water that is bought by the family can cost up to 40 NIS (9.6 euro), especially in summer when the demand is high. Family’s total consumption of water per month is around 120 cubic meters including what the animals consume.

 

Rain brings water to Susiya: Khaled’s family lives in a Bedouin shack in Susiya. In total Khaled has 8 children while some of them have started their own families and are living in the nearby town of Yatta. The main source of income for Khaled’s family is selling milk and sheep products. For herding of the sheep family uses rainwater collected during winter, as Israel does not allow the community to develop adequate essential WASH infrastructure. For domestic needs Khaled buys water from private distributors nearby. With the help of an international agency, they pay one third (10 NIS/2.4 euro) of the full price (30 NIS/7 euro) for a cubic meter of water. For their household needs the family uses approximately 30 cubic meters of water per month. Besides the challenge to access water, the whole community of Susiya is under the threat of forced displacement. On May 5 2015, Israel’s High Court of Justice ruled to allow the army to demolish the entire village of Susiya and expel its residents, numbering around 340 men, women and children.

Farming without water in Hamsa: Fayez Ebsharat lives with his wife, two disabled daughters, his son Mahmoud, his wife and two little daughters. They all live in the Northern Jordan Valley, a Bedouin village called Hamsa. The family uses total of 40 cubic meters of water every month for their domestic and agriculture needs. Fayez’ family does not have connection to the water network, as they live in Area C which is limited for Palestinian planning and building. As a result, the water is delivered to the family by trucks and tractors for a price of 18 NIS (4.30 euro) per cubic meter. “We work hard to buy this water and we use water for our hard work”, - Fayez says. The Israeli army destroyed Fayez’s house several times, but the family continues to live on their land in a Bedouin tent.

The Battle in Ukraine's Frontline
Donestk
By Arturas Morozovas
14 Nov 2014

The protests that flared up on the main square of Maidan Nezalezhnosti in Kiev sought to topple the corrupt Soviet government. One year after the start of the Maidan revolution, the country is fighting the Russia-backed separatism in the Donbas region.

Despite the mutual ceasefire agreement laid out in the Minsk Memorandum signed on September 19, gunfire continues on the daily basis in the east of the country.

During several days spent on the front lines near the Donetsk Airport, the motivation and patriotism of the Ukrainians are evident. Young volunteers, many of whom are still in the university or have recently graduated, were pacifists a year ago, but now they can handle weapons and are not afraid to die for their country. The Ukrainian Army is just behind their lines, but key tasks are entrusted to the volunteers of the ultranationalist organisation the Right Sector, and the Dnipro battalion.

The voluntary army feeding on nationalism and armed with trophy weapons captured from the separatists sends a clear message to the Ukrainian government: “When we are done in the Eastern Ukraine, we are coming for you.”

“We have never believed in the illusion of Independent Ukraine. The government is still staffed with the same Soviet relics that take pleasure in putting spokes in the wheels of the European Ukraine,” says Yashkin, the volunteer of the Right Sector.

Inside of Ukraine's 'Azov' battalion
Mariupol
By Arturas Morozovas
07 Oct 2014

They are considered fearless patriots in their own country, while Russia accuses them of Nazism and sees them as the greatest threat to the Russian nationals. Claiming to be “anti-communist”, today the Azov Battalion is no doubt the most powerful weapon in Ukraine.

The potency of this weapon comes from an effective combination of patriotic young men and professional instructors. The well-earned trust of the society and important missions handed down from the government enabled the Azov to gain foothold on the front lines. Today the battalion’s main task is to find and destroy pockets of separatism in Mariupol area and to prevent the smuggling of weapons along the shoreline of the Azov Sea.

Paradoxically, young patriotic Ukrainians, often coming from the neo-nationalist background of football hooligans, became a pillar of Ukrainian unity from the very beginning of the Maidan uprising.

From football fans to foreign soldiers

The volunteer Azov Battalion created in May this year has already taken part in several important battles to liberate a number of towns from pro-Russian separatists. The major victory was regaining control over Mariupol. The battalion’s rate of casualties is among the lowest compared to other volunteer outfits in Ukraine. The soldiers claim that this is due to their rigorous internal discipline, motivation, readiness, and the fact that seasoned commanders always take part in action with their companies.

Today, the battalion has up to a thousand fighters. Most of them have arrived from the towns and cities of Eastern Ukraine and therefore often ask to conceal their faces in the pictures. Officially a task-force of the Ukrainian police, the battalion is headed by Andriy Biletsky, the leader of the Ukrainian political organisation the Social-National Assembly (SNA).

The Azov Battalion is quite unique. It welcomes foreign volunteers and unites people advocating neo-nationalist ideas. Although the ideology is no secret in the battalion, it receives no emphasis either.

“We are the most nationalist international battalion,” laughs Andriy, one of the staff officers, and asks to translate the quotation accurately. Andriy is a history teacher, but he has put aside pedagogy to fight on the front lines of his homeland.

The Azov has some 20 foreigners in their ranks, mostly hailing from Scandinavian countries as well as from France, Canada, Italy, Greece, Slovakia, Poland, Georgia, Belarus, and Russia.

Based in Yanukovych’s villa

The Azov is headquartered in the resort town of Urzuf on the shore of the Azov Sea, 45 km from the city of Mariupol. When we reach the town behind several Ukrainian checkpoints, the driver stops by a couple of locals to ask for directions. They keep it short: “You are going to Yanek’s? Head straight.”

Urzuf is famous for its glorious sandy beaches as well as the summerhouse of the toppled president Viktor Yanukovych. The villa had been occupied by the Donbas separatists until recently, but now they have been replaced by the Azov Battalion.

The metal gate of the headquarters is decorated with the battalion’s emblem “inherited” from the SNA. The Wolfsangel logo borrowed from the Nazi Germany consists of overlapping letters N and I meaning the “National Idea.”

Azov instead of the university

The men are lifting weights in the courtyard. A phone is playing Nina Simone’s “Feeling Good.” When the refrain starts, the men break into a chorus without the slightest disruption in their activities: “It’s a new dawn, it’s a new day, it’s a new life for me, and I’m feeling good!”

One of them is Dartanyan “Dart” from Kharkiv. The 19-year-old sportsman entered the School of Law in his hometown, but has not yet opened a single book. “When I registered with the university, I sat down, took a deep breath and realised that it would be weird to sit at a school desk while my fellow countrymen are fighting, so I enlisted in the Azov Battalion. I received a call from the university some time later. They asked me why I hadn’t been showing up, and I said that I had been with the Azov. I am glad they understood my choice and wished me good luck.” Dart added that he would definitely go back to school the next year.

The well-set young man has been doing all sorts of sports from early childhood. He has also spent a year in the army and worked as a bodyguard in a private security company. Dartanyan comes from Kharkiv, which had been one of the first to flare up in the fire of separatism. “Supporting a united Ukraine and enlisting in the Azov has cost me many friends. Only a few remain – perhaps the ones that were really true. But it was a 'healthy' and necessary screening. Here, in the battalion, I have found my second family.”

When the training is over late at night, Dart joins his friend Roma from the company to take a bath in the sea, as there is still no hot water in the summerhouse. Treading across the territory of the former president’s villa, the boys stop to watch the other fighters from the battalion play football. “Look at those faces. The difference from the separatists is obvious. The battalion consists of educated volunteers who love their country and have been united under a single purpose – to free our homeland from the grip of Russian-backed separatism. This makes us all a single family with strong ties. The atmosphere here is proper.”

Tired of putting up with Russia

The highest number of legionaries in the battalion comes from Sweden. One of them, Leo, arrived to the Azov from Malmö a few weeks ago.

Leo has the Poseidon’s trident tattooed on his cheek. In Sweden, the symbol is used by the Kustjägarna, or Costal Rangers, the amphibious special operations unit. The legionary claims to be a fresh graduate from the Swedish Military Academy and says he was brought to Ukraine by two reasons: to fight pro-Russian separatists and to help the Ukrainians who share similar nationalist ideas.

“I cannot stand aside when national boundaries are shifting in the 21st century, and I cannot stand aside when a state rides a tank into the sovereign territory of another country,” says Leo, and promises to stay in Donbas as long as he is needed.

Carolus arrived from central Sweden and says he was disappointed with Sweden’s tolerance towards Russia. “I am here to fight the separatists. I resent Sweden for putting up with the imperialist occupant. But, I believe that in time my country will reconsider its relations with Russia.”

During the conversation Carolus is gutting fish in the spacious kitchen of the resort where the Azov battalion is based. “Until recently, we [the foreigners] have been excluded from cooking and fighting activities due to the vital language barrier”, says the Swede and hopes to join the battles once he has proven himself in food preparation.

When asked if he is ever going home, the Swede ponders for a moment and then replies that he is not sure whether he wants to go back to the “tolerant Sweden” after his experiences here in Ukraine.

Only a couple of foreigners serving in the battalion have seen real action in Donbas. According to Leo, they have been left behind because they can’t speak Ukrainian or Russian which could lead to communication failure in critical situations, and because of a lack of political will to use the English language in radio communication.

Foreigners do not deny that the Azov Battalion is forming an English speaking unit of legionaries, which is expected to be commanded by the legendary sniper of the Swedish army Mikael Killt.

Secret arrival

Perhaps the most seasoned among the legionaries is the soldier from Thessaloniki dubbed the “Greek.” “I was thrown in the middle of fighting in Donetsk region as soon as I arrived,” recalls the Greek. “I hadn’t even received a uniform yet.” The professional Greek army officer claims to have already taken part in a lot of combat action during the couple of months in the Azov battalion. “Perhaps too much,” he adds with a sigh.

He arrived on personal grounds: “Every foreigner has his own motivations and causes. Some are yearning for adventure, some are professional soldiers, and some have come to support a Nazi ideology. My reasons have been to take part in combat action and gain experience. Of course, I also hate Russians. I am here because the Azov is the only battalion to welcome foreigners.” Officially, the soldiers earn only $70 per month here.

“Greeks support Communism, therefore they back Russia’s actions, while I have always been pro-Western,” says the legionnaire. “We have fought a 5-year war against Greeks with Bulgarian roots. They were also supported by the Communist party and, of course, Russia. I don’t see many differences between the separatist actions that took place in Greece and the current events in Ukraine.”

Like the other foreigners, the Greek has arrived here under cover and would like to conceal his identity. Unlike France, most of the European countries don’t have laws banning their citizens from joining foreign armies, but most of the arrivals would like to avoid unnecessary attention and possible retributions in the homelands.

Ancient Easter Tradition of Lelo in G...
Georgia, europe
By Arturas Morozovas
21 Apr 2014

April 20, 2014- While most families in Georgia were celebrating Easter around dinner tables, one village in the western region of Guria marked the occasion with a rugby-like scramble that effectively blocked traffic for hours on the country's East-West national highway.

The traditional Georgian sport known as Lelo ("goal" or "try" in Georgian) has no rules, no time-outs, and no limit to the number of men who can play. The "field" is the entire village of Shukhuti, a hamlet of about 2,000. The village is well-known for the highway running across the settlement. The road is closed one day a year for the Lelo fight.

Two creeks, about 150 meters apart, mark the goal lines for the two teams. Teams are made up of inhabitants from the upper and lower halves of the village. The aim is simple: whichever side is the first to carry a 16-kilogram leather ball back to their creek wins the game.
The ball is thrown to the crowd by the pope in the carefully measured centre between the two brooks, and for several hours the approximately 150 metre field becomes a Lelo battlefield.

The ceremony of stuffing the ball begins in the morning. The players stuff it with sand, earth and wine till the afternoon. During the ceremony, the crowd toasts to wish luck and good health to the players : they drink wine from the ball itself, using it as a vessel. Everyone in the yard must drink from the Lelo ball to wish victory to the players and strength to the ball.

Pope Saba is at the centre of the ceremony. He is a a former Greco-Roman wrestler who has played Lelo for three decades. The pope has now been endowed with the upstanding privilege to bless the ball and throw it to the players for 13 years.

After a couple of hours of toasts and jokes , the ritual of stuffing the ball comes to an end. Once the ball is stuffed, it undergoes another weighing. An archaic scale shows almost 18 kilograms, but an inhabitant assures that “once the wine evaporates, it will be exactly 16 kilograms”. A crowd of participants and spectators walk from the house of the shoemaker, who made the ball, down the highway to the church where the ball will be blessed. Pope Saba carries is and is willing to give everyone a feel of what it’s like to carry such a ball. The ones who do catch it are hailed with applause, while the ones who trip or drop the ball are showered with laughter.

The team who wins dedicates the leather ball to the last deceased player and places it on his grave- a reflection of Georgian Orthodox Church tradition of visiting cemeteries on Easter to commemorate loved ones. Lelo balls in various stages of decomposition can be seen on graves in Shukhuti's cemeteries.
Once in the cemetery, the ball is placed on the grave of the last player who died. The villagers toast again and drink wine. Many older balls can be seen on other graves – some had been placed there quite recently and still bear wine stains, while some are almost rotten but continue to sit atop the graves.

Nobody knows the exact time when people began playing Lelo. There are many versions based on different sources. A number of pagan rituals involved in the game suggest it was played in Georgia long before the coming of Christianity. Lelo is believed to be the predecessor of the rugby.

Ukraine Uprising in Kiev
Kiev
By Arturas Morozovas
21 Feb 2014

Deadly violence erupted on both sides, anti and pro-government throughout Ukraine, and at the epicenter: Maidan. It's a round square in the centre of country's capital Kiev where the revolution was born and is still growing. All can be found there, from brutal militia beating Ukrainians, or in contrary - provocative protesters throwing "molotovs" at their contemporary guys in uniforms. Burning barricades, a black-faced protestant, woman offering pancakes with strawberry confiture on a side, freedom songs, warm jacket given by a stranger and a smiling "Berkut" guy beyond his metal shield. This is Kiev.

Since the week of February 17, 2014, at least 105 people have been killed in deadly clashes. On February 21, 2014, a deal was signed between the Ukrainian President and opposition leaders.
