Who really owns borsch - BBC

Posted 10/16/2019

"The problem with this statement is that Ancient Rus was centred in Kyiv (Kiev in Russian), now the capital of Ukraine. Over the past millennium, Ukraine’s largest city has been defined by repeated invasion, occupations and violent uprisings – often against the stronghold of Russian influence over Ukrainian politics. Rebranding Ukraine’s national food staple as Russian is even more ironic and offensive in light of the Holodomor, Stalin’s manmade famine of 1932-33, when forced collectivisation, aggressive grain procurement and confiscation of food stores led to the starvation of millions of Ukrainians."

Chernobyl Fireighters, Dr. Gale, Kiev Medical Miracle

Posted 9/26/2019

New chapter has been added to "UKRAINE & THE UNITED STATES" book.

"...only part of that crew were transported to Moscow. They were considered lucky at the time because they were taken to hospital #6 which was the only specialized hospital in the whole USSR to treat the patient with radiation diseases.

Now it has become known that the hospital during the first several weeks relied heavily on the instructions of an American doctor who insisted on bone marrow transplants. His name was Dr. Robert Gale.

In all, according to Soviet physicians, only 13 bone marrow transplants and six fetal liver cell transplant operations were done... Only the patients in Moscow received bone marrow transplants. Out of these 2 survived, and only 1 showed autologous bone marrow re-population."


Report from Kiev, August 1986:

"“We are walking in the department with Professor L.P. Kindzelskiy, the chief radiologist of the Ukrainian SSR Ministry of Health and the scientific leader in this clinic. We stop in front of the glass-partitioned resuscitation rooms, filled with complicated equipment. We are silent, our heads bowed in sorrow. It was here that Aleksandr Grigoryevich Lelechenko died; his exploit is today known throughout the country. Lelechenko is a tender Ukrainian word that means child of the leleka —the stork. It was here that he folded his wings. The physicians were powerless. The others survived, and today they feel much better. Some patients are nearly ready to be discharged.”

Ukraine was major aim and main battlefield of WW2, - Yale History Professor

Posted 9/19/2019

"The point of the Second World War from Hitler’s point of view, the purpose of the Second World War from Hitler's point of view was the conquest of Ukraine. It is therefore senseless to commemorate, to remember any part of the Second World War without beginning from Ukraine. Any commemoration of the Second World War that involves the Nazi purposes, the ideological, economic, political purposes of the Nazi regime, must begin precisely from Ukraine.


The result of this ideology, the result of all of this, the result of this ideology of this war was that some three and a half million inhabitants of Soviet Ukraine, three and a half million inhabitants of Soviet Ukraine – civilians – were victims of German killing policies between 1941 and 1945. In addition to that three and a half million about three million Ukrainians, inhabitants of Soviet Ukraine, died as soldiers in Red Army or died indirectly as a consequence of the war.

Now these numbers are numbers for inhabitants of Soviet Ukraine alone. Of course, the numbers are greater when it includes the entire Soviet Union. But, it's worth being specific here about the difference of Ukraine and the rest of the Soviet Union. For two reasons, the first is Ukraine was the major war aim. Ukraine was the center of Hitler's ideological colonialism. But beyond that, in practice, in practice all of Soviet Ukraine was occupied for most of the war which is why for Ukrainians today war is something that happens here as it supposed to elsewhere."  (Timothy Snyder's speech at Bundestag)

"Ukraine in WWII" documentary. Narrated by Jack Palance

Posted 9/12/2019

"The film "Between Hitler and Stalin" chronicles the struggle between the Nazi and Soviet regimes, from a Ukrainian perspective. The documentary recounts the events in Ukraine on the brink of the Second World War, during the Soviet occupation of Western Ukraine (1939–1941), the German-Soviet War, the Nazi occupation of Ukraine and the second Soviet occupation of Western Ukraine (1944). 

The impact of these events, which claimed 8 to 10 million Ukrainian lives, is depicted through segments on the “scorched-earth” policies of both powers; the tragedy of the Jews; and the 2.3 million Ukrainians taken as slave labourers (Ostarbeiters). The Ukrainians’ struggle against the Nazi occupiers and the Ukrainian Insurgent Army’s fight—against both totalitarian powers—for Ukraine’s independence are is portrayed. 

The film also deals with the forcible repatriation of Ukrainians to the Soviet Union, Displaced Persons (D.P.) camps and emigration. Between Hitler and Stalin features eyewitness accounts, documentary material, rare film footage, photos and documents obtained from myriad sources."

Moscow occupied its part of Poland according to Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact under pretence of "protecting the Ukrainians and Belarusians who lived in the eastern part of Poland, because the Polish state – according to Soviet propaganda – had collapsed"

Posted 8/31/2019

"The Soviet invasion of Poland was a military operation by the Soviet Union without a formal declaration of war...

The Red Army, which vastly outnumbered the Polish defenders, achieved its targets encountering only limited resistance. Some 320,000 Polish prisoners of war had been captured.

The campaign of mass persecution in the newly acquired areas began immediately. In November 1939 the Soviet government ostensibly annexed the entire Polish territory under its control. Some 13.5 million Polish citizens who fell under the military occupation were made into new Soviet subjects following show elections conducted by the NKVD secret police in the atmosphere of terror." (Wikipedia)


Any similarities with the way Crimea was occupied? Any comparison with what has been going on in that peninsular?

Usually, when Moscow says it is going to defend someone, it means it is going to occupy and kill a lot of people. Like in Katyn Massacre.

And thousands of people it had proclaimed it was going to defend:

"..in Lviv, Lutsk, Stanislav, Dubno and in dozens of other cities in Western Ukraine there began a mass execution of political prisoners. During the first two weeks of the war, more than 21 thousand people were shot by the NKVD in the prisons of Western Ukraine. With the eastward departure of the Red Army, mass executions took place in Vinnytsia, Uman, Kyiv and other cities." (Ukraine in WWII)
