Language Issue in Ukraine
"For me, the Russian language in Ukraine is the death of Ukraine."

In 1991 the Czech and Slovak Federal Republic passed the Lustration Law, which provides that
There is, unfortunately, no such Lustration Law in Ukraine. The implications of this major lacuna are shatteringly obvious.

Leider existiert in der Ukraine kein solches Lustrationsgesetz, was sehr zu bedauern ist.
Auf dieser Website befindet sich die Studie „ Lustration oder Ukraine unter dem KGB“. Diese Studie ist ein öffentliches Informationsprojekt mit dem Ziel, die Anwesenheit der KGB- Agenten, Komsomol- und Kommunistische Partei-Führer in der Regierung der Ukraine bekannt zu machen.

Loi sur la Lustration
"John Demjanjuk was convicted by an Israeli court of having been an imaginary Ivan the Terrible of Treblinka, and was sentenced to death, but was saved from hanging by the discovery that it had been another Ukrainian Ivan — Ivan Marchenko — who had really been that imaginary Ivan the Terrible of Treblinka.

"The history of the John Demjanjuk case is replete with geopolitical intrigue, judicial misconduct, disinformation and outright deceit. There is a direct connection to the KGB and the on-going Soviet efforts to discredit the Ukrainian Diaspora -- its promotion of Ukrainian independence, its steadfast anti-Communism and the eyewitness accounts of the genocidal policies of the Soviet regime."
-- Dr. William Zuzak, Ph.D., P.Eng., in his open letter of Nov. 25, 2009 to The Honourable Angela Merkel, Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany
"Russia’s special services are seeking to destabilize the situation in Ukraine, undermine its sovereignty and independence, create a negative image of this country, block its integration into European and Euro-Atlantic structures, and turn Ukraine into a dependent and manipulated satellite. In their special operations against Ukraine they attribute exceptional importance to the «Jewish card» [. . .]
In recent months, the number of personnel in the FSB structures that deal with Ukraine has increased by 1.5 times, and this increase is reminiscent of the 1950s, when the underground Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) was active in Ukraine."
-- Moses Fishbein, at the 26th Conference on Ukrainian Subjects at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (USA), 24-27 June 2009.
"The ancients said: De mortuis aut bene, aut nihil. Of the dead be nothing said but what is good. In recent years, Russian politicians, diplomats, political scientists, journalists, and even pop stars have clearly taken a fancy to another expression: De Ukraina aut male, aut nihil. Of Ukraine be nothing said but what is bad. Nothing matters to them — not logic or common sense, not honesty or decency. In their view, Ukraine — like the young woman with a fierce mother-in-law, like the Jew among anti-Semites — is guilty of everything."
-- Ukrainian poet and patriot Moses Fishbein, at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine briefing on 3 November 2008.
A surname often points to the national or racial origin of an individual. None would contest that an O'Flaherty or an O'Reilly has an Irish ancestor in their lineage. They might not care a whit about their Irish roots; but their genes still carry an indelible Irish stamp. That stamp is advertised by their name. To a greater or lesser degree that is beyond their conscious control, their very being is thereby programmed, not to speak of the effect of their home environment in formative years.
Ukrainians, the issue of an ancient Slavic culture spanning millennia, possess a comparable stamp. One evidence of it shows up in surnames with indisputably Ukrainian endings. Of these, perhaps the most common and best recognized the O'Flaherty of the Ukrainians is "-enko". But there are actually many others: names ending in "-uk", "-iuk", "-yk", "-ok", "-o", "-a", "-ovych", "-sky", "-ts'", "-iak", "-ylo", "-ets", "-an".
Focusing mostly on the "-enko" ending, a Ukrainian philological expert in Slavic languages recently compiled an informal list of Enkos living in Russia, that she obtained from publicly-available publications over a two-year period. There are now nearly 180 names on the list and it is still growing. A copy is attached herewith.
The names we see here are not just plain-vanilla Enkos. These Ukrainians are in the service of Russia and they are among Russia's best and brightest. They wield power and influence far beyond their numbers, affecting major sectors of life within and outside the country. They are part of the vital glue that holds Russia together. What an intriguing perspective!
Lemko Martyrs Remembered
". . . We wish [first of all] to pay our humble respects to the noble son of Lemkivshchyna, His Excellency Kyr Josaphat Kocylowsky, Bishop-martyr of Peremyshl, Sambir and Sanik, who was arrested by the Poles, beaten and dragged with his throne to the prison, and delivered to the Russian NKVD in 1945, there to be imprisoned and subjected to all manner of inhuman torture until he passed away November 17th, 1947. . ."
-- Organization for the Defense of Lemkivshchyna; gathered at their Sixth National Convention on October 23rd and 24th, 1965, in Passaic, New Jersey, USA.
