The principles of Maidan: an environment with a networked structure
Maidan’s environment is formed by people of different age and gender, ideology and religion, members of different parties and not affiliated with any of them. These people do praise the values of democracy and open civil society, dismiss the extremist ideologies, racial and national hatred and xenophobia. Most of them are not planning any political career for themselves.

Maidan’s strategy is outlined in the Maidan Memorandum (2005)

Our mission is told by our activists in OUR REVOLUTION (2005)

“Maidan” uses theoretical background of resistance movements outlined by Gene Sharp, Polish “Solidarnost” union, Serbian “Otpor” movement, Belorussian movement ZUBR and the heritage of Ukrainian Anti-Communist movement for Independence before 1991.

All Ukrainian civic organization «Maidan» Alliance is registered by Ministry of Justice of Ukraine in 2006 without opening a legal entity (peculiarities of Ukrainian legal system). Maidan Monitoring Information Center is one of legal representatives of «Maidan» Alliance.
