What is Maidan Norway?
Maidan Norway is an independent, self-governing association. Our main mission is to disseminate information about Ukraine in the Norwegian mass media and among the public in general. Furthermore we wish to promote bilateral relations between Norway and Ukraine, contributing to the ongoing democratization process in Ukraine.
We run the information portal www.maidan.no, where we share news, analysis and other relevant information that we believe may contribute to a better understanding of politics, society and ongoing events in Ukraine.
