   HOW A FEMALE JEWISH JOURNALIST ALERTED THE WORLD TO UKRAINE’S SILENT STARVATION

While driving through the Ukrainian countryside in 1932, Rhea Clyman, a Jewish-Canadian journalist, stopped in a village to ask where she could buy some milk and eggs. The villagers couldn’t understand her, but someone went off and came back with a crippled 14-year-old boy, who slowly made his way to her. “We are starving, we have no bread,” he said, and went on to describe the dire conditions of the previous spring. “The children were eating grass… they were down on all fours like animals… There was nothing else for them.” To illustrate the point, a peasant woman began to peel off her children’s clothes. “She undressed them one by one, prodded their sagging bellies, pointed to...

   ANTI-CORRUPTION EFFORTS SHOWING RESULTS IN UKRAINE

On April 24, the Special Anti-Corruption Prosecutor of Ukraine detained parliamentarian Oleh Lyashko and interrogated him for three and half hours. Lyashko was accused of illicit enrichment from the state. It turned out that Lyashko’s inner circle had been stealing from a state-owned factory and was engaging in public procurement fraud. Law enforcement is still investigating the case, and it remains uncertain if the politician will face trial. The reason Lyashko faced interrogation was because of a segment broadcast on Nashi Hroshi (Our Money), a TV program that I anchor. The piece revealed that he lived in a million-dollar home that he...

   CARDIN PRAISES SENATE-PASSED RUSSIA, IRAN SANCTIONS BILL

The U.S. Senate passed bipartisan legislation Thursday to sanction Russia and Iran for their destabilizing activities worldwide. U.S. Senator Ben Cardin (D-MD.), Ranking Member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, wrote much of the comprehensive package and worked as a chief negotiator to help his colleagues reach bipartisan consensus on the path to final passage today. “Iran and Russia need to see more than rhetoric from the United States.

   THE SENATE JUST PASSED A MONUMENTAL NEW RUSSIA SANCTIONS BILL—HERE’S WHAT’S IN IT

Today, the Senate overwhelmingly approved a bill that would fortify existing sanctions on Russia and add new restrictions. If the bill becomes law, it would mark the most significant step taken by Congress on Russia policy in recent history. Though not perfect, the bill would substantially strengthen the West’s negotiating position vis-à-vis Russia on the conflict in Ukraine and send a strong message to Moscow that efforts to undermine US elections carry costly consequences. It is not yet a sure thing that the bill will become law. While the...

   MIRACLE OF 2014 WAS UKRAINE’S DUNKIRK

One of the biggest blockbuster movies of summer 2017 looks likely to be “Dunkirk,” a WWII drama set on the beaches of northern France in summer 1940 as Adolf Hitler’s panzer armies closed in on pockets of trapped and surrounded allied forces. The film will introduce global audiences to one of the most celebrated events in modern British history—the successful evacuation of over 300,000 soldiers by a makeshift armada of merchant shipping and pleasure boats manned by civilian volunteers who braved the Luftwaffe to cross the English Channel and bring the stranded troops home. British audiences are well aware of the legend surrounding Dunkirk—it has been...

   OLIVER STONE TO STEPHEN COLBERT: VLADIMIR PUTIN HAS BEEN 'INSULTED' AND 'ABUSED'

On Monday evening, a deranged man appeared in Midtown Manhattan to rant in front of a large and largely helpless audience about world affairs, those involving Russia in particular. The plainly disturbed individual was, by turns, incoherent, disingenuous and condescending. Most troubling of all was his insistence that he be taken seriously, when, in fact, he could only be taken ridiculously. The man was identified as professional conspiracy theorist Oliver Stone. Stone’s embarrassing appearance on...

   UKRAINIANS RESOLUTE IN DESIRE TO KEEP COUNTRY UNITED, NEW POLL REVEALS

On May 10, Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov and Ukrainian Foreign Minister Pavlo Klimkin separately met with President Donald J. Trump, who later tweeted his desire for the two countries to make peace. Most would like to see this war come to a close—with more than 10,000 lives lost and over 1.7 million internally displaced people, it is the deadliest and most disruptive conflict in Europe since the 1990s. With rumors that the Trump administration plans to restart the Ukraine peace process, the question of what a lasting peace deal would look like has resurfaced again. A new poll by the International Republican Institute (IRI) suggests that...
