There are eighteen articles on the efforts of the OSI and the U.S. Immigration authorities to extradite John Demjanjuk to Germany. The whole month of April 2009 was a circus of legal maneuverings, media hype and actual removal of Mr. Demjanjuk from his home on 14Apr2009, only to be returned that evening because of a court order. The reader is encouraged to review the links in my composition “Evil Machinations of the OSI against John Demjanjuk” to counter some of the media distortions. As of 01May2009, Mr. Demjanjuk is still at home.

Will Zuzak, 2009.05.06
My respected colleagues, friends and acquaintances,
In case any of you is not aware, there is an all out information war against Ukraine on the internet for the last decade or so. The war has intensified recently with Russian agents using youtube and other popular internet websites to slander the Ukrainian nation, people, language, The Holodomor and the Ukrainian culture. The goal is simple - to break Ukraine into pieces and create a pro Russian state in the south and east.
sites like the following:
http://www.youtube.com/user/Co6a4eHok Where videoes like the following are posted are picking up steam.
Denial of the Holodomor is popular. The popular opinion of these Russian agents is that Yuschenko suddenly dreamed up the Holodomor.
Russia has also started using popular and intelligent Ukrainian citizens in this war. The latest victim being Anatolij Vasserman, a political consultant and long time contestant on Russia's version of Jeopardy. His website - http://awas1952.livejournal.com/ is full of anti-Ukrainian rhetoric, beginning with the idea that the Ukrainian nation was created by the Austrians and Poles and that the Ukrainian language is a dialect of Russian. Beyond that he promotes the idea of getting rid of Halychyna and attaching the rest of Ukraine to Russia. This may seem like just simple internet babble, but it is not. Wasserman actually is well respected in Ukraine and has a cult-following. The recent killing of Ukrainian patriot Maksym Chajka by pro-Russians in Odessa is proof of how far this has gone.
Talkshows continue to feed into this anti-Ukrainian rhetoric. With the party Svoboda winning in Ternopil oblast, talk shows like Savik Shusters - see for yourself http://shuster.kanalukraina.tv/video/1963_ugrozhaet_li_ukraine_neofashizm?/continue to promote western Ukraine as anti-semetic, racist and facist. And Eastern Ukraine is seen as pro-Russian, with a population that no longer wishes to be in one state with the Banderite from the west.
I bring this to your attention in this election year in Ukraine so that you are all aware. With the economy in disarray in Ukraine, there is no time like now for Russia to pounce on Ukraine. We can remain silent and become little Russians or we can fight the good fight that our forefathers did so bravely.
May the truth always set us free.
