Do separatists in Ukraine turn terrorists?


Yet another explosion quaked the center of Kharkiv, after those of December. Not only the eastern city has been targeted, as other cities at risk of separatism like Odessa and Mariupol have seen blasts in recent weeks. Beyond the war, a strategy of terror seems to destabilize the country. Who is behind the bombs? Do separatists in Ukraine turn terrorists?

When I decided the topic of this post, it was just after another bomb exploded in Odessa. I didn’t even start writing, that yet another quaked the cold evening in Kharkiv. In the last couple of months, dozens of attacks across the southeast of Ukraine make the authorities raise their guard against a new terrorist threat. Attacks have spread amid the ceasefire in Donbass: in Odessa alone there were seven attacks last month. Among the cities affected there are also Kherson and Mariupol. They are not war zones, but the map drawn by bomb blasts coincides with that part of Ukraine still at risk of separatism, albeit under the control of the government in Kiev. Can we start to talk about a separatist’s change of strategy?
