As the situation in Ukraine gets more and more ugly and inhumane, with dozens of people dead and hundreds wounded by the regime, I find it hard to write any of my own thoughts here. There are simply no right words to describe what I feel as a Ukrainian and as a human. So here are a few links to useful summaries, lifestreams and news sources.

For up-to-the-minute news, follow me on Twitter as I retweet and translate into English the main events and highlights (not exhaustive, but the most I can do): @tanyalokot

Round-up of lifestreams from Kyiv and Twitter lists of English tweeters about Ukraine that I and my colleagues from Global Voices compiled: Follow the Escalation of Ukraine’s #Euromaidan Protests Live

More social media sources and liveblogs from @Brown_Moses.

A subReddit for the content and news from the protests: /r/UkrainianConflict

KyivPost (local English-language news outlet) liveblog of the events.

I will try to to update with more sources as the situation develops.

I am currently in the US. Going to work today seems much less real and important than following and tweeting about events in Ukraine. Death & suffering are not virtual, and pain is felt across thousands of miles. The injustices and crimes against humanity are not acceptable and must stop.
