(3) Will Zuzak Letters:
The Ukrainian Independence Movement: 1900 - 2018 MoZeus/Will Zuzak Letters:, 25Feb2018; Will Zuzak

- In response to the recent passage of an anti-Ukrainian amendment to the "Institute of National Remembrance - Commission for the Prosecution of Crimes against the Polish Nation" criminalizing "Bandera Ideology" by the Polish Sejm and Senate and its signing by President Andrzej Duda on 06Feb2018, I have written out my own personal experiences and views on the subject.
- It is certainly a topic which should be discussed within the Ukrainian community and with our Polish friends. Perhaps it is time to create a “Ukrainian Polish Encounter” organization!
- As I note in my article: The motto of the UPA was very simple: Establish an independent Ukrainian state or die trying.

Taking on Timothy Snyder Kyiv Post, 24Feb2018, Oksana Bashuk Hepburn

- In analysing a Polish-language interview of Timothy Snyder on the contentious law referred to above, Ms. Bashuk Hepburn accuses Mr. Snyder of taking a pro-Polish position. He fails to consider Ukrainian resistance to Polish oppressive policies as the Polish regime tried to incorporate Ukrainian ethnographic lands into its newly-established state in 1919.
- [Neither do Polish (or Ukrainian) historians ever refer to Polish atrocites by Haller's Army even before the end of World War One.]
