WillZuzak.ca > Lily | MoZeus | WiZeus | zuzak20150701GRC.html

(1) Holodomor/Genocide: http://www.willzuzak.ca/tp/holodomor2013/holodomor2013.html
Wasyl Sydorovych Rud (1916.04.11 - 2012.05.02)  WillZuzak.ca, 23Jul2012; Victor Rud, [2] Ukr. translation

- Victor Rud has provided a Ukrainian-language translation of his excellent English-language obituary to his father.

(2) Ukrainophobia/Genocide: http://www.willzuzak.ca/tp/ukrainophobia/ukrainophobia.html
In Ukraine, movement to honor members of WWII underground sets off debate  Washington Post, 06Jan2010; John Pancake, [2] UABA response, [3] UABA (ukr), [4] Pancake (ukr)

- This article by John Pancake just at the beginning of the disasterous reign of Victor Yanukovych (2010-2014) initiated the attack on the Ukrainian Independence Movement and, thus, on Ukraine's independence. The Washington Post declined to publish a rebuttal by the Ukrainian American Bar Association. Victor Rud has provided the UABA response and Ukrainian translations of the two articles. One notes that the Ukrainophobes (fifth-columnists?) undermining Ukraine's independence that were operating in 2010 are still active in 2015.

(3) Religious Affairs:  http://www.willzuzak.ca/cl/religious/religious.html
Moscow Patriarch Says Ukrainian Faithful No Longer Obligated to Obey Kyiv  Jamestown Foundation, 02Jun2015; Paul Goble

- Since tsarist times, the Russian Orthodox Church has consistently supported Russian imperialism to suppress the Ukrainian state, language and people.

(4) Video Links:  http://www.willzuzak.ca/cl/videolinks/videolinks.html
Russia and Ukraine -- Historical background of a European conflict  CDU/CSU, 11Jun2015; Timothy Snyder  [19:20]

- A full transcription of the English-language speech of Timothy Snyder is provided, wherein he emphasizes that Hitler's main goal for WWII was to conquer lebensraum for German colonial expansion via occupation of Ukraine and warns against a new Russian-German colonial Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact. A stand-alone link to this speech and critical comments by Roman Korol and Victor Rud are appended.

Russian Roulette: The Invasion of Ukraine  Simon Ostrovsky of Vice News  [Multiple videos] [[108], latest 25Apr2015]
Selfie Soldiers: Russia Checks in to Ukraine  Vice News, 16Jun2015; Simon Ostrovsky

- To prove that Russian soldiers are, indeed, fighting in Ukraine, Simon Ostrovsky uses the techniques of Eliot Higgins of Bellingcat to trace the movements of Bato Dambaev from the Russian Federation to Vuhlehirsk (Ukraine) and back to his home in Ulan-Ude (Buryatia), where he visits his wife and contacts him by telephone.

(5) Putin Files:  http://www.willzuzak.ca/cl/putin/putin.html
The Bolshevik Code: kto-kogo? (who-whom?)  European Affairs, 16Jun2015; Jerrold Schecter
Putin on the march: the coming major strategic offensive  Euromaidan Press, 03Jun2015; Thomas Theiner

- The article by Thomas Theiner on the situation in Ukraine is very harsh but realistic.
- Jerrold Schecter argues convincingly that Vladimir Putin is afflicted with the Tsarist Russian and Bolshevik uncompromising zero-sum mindset: "Who will kill whom?"

(6) Book Reviews:  http://willzuzak.ca/cl/bookreview/bookreview.html
Reordering of Meaningful Worlds   Stockholm University, 2014; Yuliya Yurchuk

- For her Ph.D. dissertation on the "politics of memory", Yuliya Yurchuk discusses 3 monuments in Rivne (Ukraine) dedicated to OUN-UPA resistance to occupying forces during WW2 and interviews the inhabitants of Rivne as to their perceptions of Klym Savur and Taras Bulba-Borovets. Unfortunately, she blindly parrots the negative views of Himka and Rudling towards "nationalists" and the "far right".
