   MISREPRESENTATIONS, QUESTIONABLE CREDENTIALS, MALAPROPISMS, GENERALIZATIONS AND HALF-TRUTHS

The OUN was a national liberation movement. At its first congress in 1929 it did not adopt any resolution regarding the form of government of a future state. When the OUN began to address the issue of a form of government in 1940, it issued a manifesto which included specific provisions guaranteeing the rights of individuals to work and pursue happiness, protecting women and children, specifically “for the dignity and...

   WHY WE CONTINUE TO MISUNDERSTAND PUTIN’S WAR IN UKRAINE

The Euromaidan and Russia’s annexation of Crimea have turned Ukraine into a popular media topic. But Russian President Vladimir Putin’s war against Ukraine has also led to a giant surge in academic and think tank publications about Ukraine, with more than three hundred published since 2014. These scholarly and expert analyses have taken five main approaches—four of which miss the key elements that have driven Putin’s aggression toward Ukraine. Far left and right realists tend to blame the West for the crisis. They describe it as a civil war between Russian and Ukrainian speakers; believe Crimea was rightfully Russian; blame NATO, the EU, the...

   ALEXANDER DUGIN AND STEVE BANNON’S IDEOLOGICAL TIES TO VLADIMIR PUTIN’S RUSSIA

These days, having any sort of ties to Moscow is politically toxic in Washington. Recent reports indicate Donald Trump may have borrowed Russian money to keep his property empire afloat—while several investigations loom into alleged Kremlin interference in the U.S. presidential election and a host of murky connections between Trump campaign officials and Russian hackers and spies. Trump’s chief strategist, Steve Bannon, hasn't been implicated in any of the ongoing probes. And unlike former Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Carter Page, he isn’t under investigation by the FBI for...

   RUSSIA TARGETS CHILDREN’S WELFARE

A recent United Nations statistic about child abuse reveals another Russian premeditated violation of an internationally recognized principle. The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) stated on April 7 that more than 200,000 Ukrainian children – about 25% of the population in the Luhansk and Donetsk regions of Ukraine – are severely affected by Russia’s armed invasion. Consequently, they require urgent and sustained psychosocial support to address their traumatic experiences. That’s two hundred thousand. Not a...

   THE JEWISH GROUP THAT CONNECTS PUTIN AND TRUMP

Chabad of Port Washington, a Jewish community center on Long Island’s Manhasset Bay, sits in a squat brick edifice across from a Shell gas station and a strip mall. The center is an unexceptional building on an unexceptional street, save for one thing: Some of the shortest routes between Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin run straight through it. Two decades ago, as the Russian president set about consolidating power on one side of the world, he embarked on a project to supplant his country’s existing Jewish civil society and replace...

   ACCOMPLICE TOMAIDAN JOURNALIST KILLING HAS ‘MAGIC’ EFFECT ON UKRAINIAN JUDGES

YuryKrysin admits taking part in the fatal attack on journalist ViacheslavVeremiy during Euromaidan and has been convicted of numerous other violent crimes. Yet “Ukrainian judges have only to see him and they’re seized by a burning desire to release him from custody”. Such a “magic” effect is how civic activist Maria TomakdescribesKrysin’s latest success in avoiding custody. There are, unfortunately, grounds for suspecting that the same ‘magic’ can influence Ukrainian prosecutors as well, and...

   AN ETHNIC AND RELIGIOUS HAVEN NONETHELESS

Ukraine certainly has its problems. It is engulfed in war which seems endless. It's territory has been invaded and annexed by a brutal neighbor. It's standard of living is not far removed from poverty. It's corruption is rampant and at the highest levels. Still Ukraine is only 25 years young and is only now beginning to write its own history. Yet, at the same time, it is a paragon for ethnic and religious tolerance often bizarre. Although its enemy is Russia, a vast majority of its citizens continue to use the Russian language. The Russian ethnic...

   SENATE ADOPTS SERGEI MAGNITSKY LAW: CALLING FOR STRENGTHENED MEASURES AGAINST HUMAN RIGHTS VIOLATORS

The Senate of Canada today adopted Bill S-226, the Justice for Victims of Corrupt Foreign Officials Act (Sergei Magnitsky Law), a bill introduced by Senator RaynellAndreychuk. “Bill S-226 signals internationally that Canada cannot be used to enable or shelter gross violators of internationally recognized human rights,” said Senator Andreychuk. “Through amendments to the Special Economic Measures Act and the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, Bill S-226 would allow for the Canadian assets and property of foreign nationals to be seized, frozen or sequestered, if those foreign nationals are...

   WHY DID PUTIN GET STUCK IN EASTERN UKRAINE?

Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is now entering its fourth year, but there was a time when few expected it to last even four weeks. The virtually bloodless seizure of Crimea, which fell to Russian troops in early 2014 without a fight, led most observers to conclude that Ukraine was effectively defenseless and at Moscow’s mercy. This was the consensus view in Moscow, where many of the bolder voices began speaking of celebrating the traditional May holidays in Kyiv itself. Such swagger seemed perfectly reasonable; Ukraine was still reeling from...

   LEAGUE OF UKRAINIAN CANADIANS WELCOMES THE RENEWAL OF OPERATION UNIFIER

The National Executive of the League of Ukrainian Canadians welcomes the renewal of Operation UNIFIER, Canada’s military training mission to Ukraine, until March 2019.
