<< < (2/3) > >>

It may not be all the media are saying especially when you look at what the Russians are tacking out.

I was tempted to contact of our Russian community friends just know like "a  man in the street" point of view, but I was advice not to do that to protect themself in case they are not in favor of the Russian government.

Russia is not know for their freedom of speech on these days, communications may be monitored, and it is better not to put them in trouble.

In Russia, military censorship will be introduced. Participants of anti-war rallies are delayed and imprisoned.

Nevertheless, I urge to take care of the Ukrainians because they have a chance to die.

No war!

Lets start a war said maggie one day
With the unemployed masses we'll just do away
They won't mind, like sheep they'll go
They won't suss us, they'll never know
Lets start a war said maggie one day
Lets start a war said maggie one day

«Alle gegen Alle».

I would also like to add my voice in supporting the Ukraine in its uphill fight against the current aggression, and my wishes for the personal safety of many friends I have made in this community some of whom may be in the Ukraine at this very moment.

I am not of Ukrainian descent myself, but am 3rd generation Polish Canadian - my grandparents emigrated from Poland to Canada early in the 20th century. My mothers parents were from small Polish villages near the Ukrainian border, and I remember them speaking both Polish and Ukrainian fluently to friends, as I was growing up in the North End of Winnipeg, in the province of Manitoba, in Canada.

The North End has been a melting pot of immigrants from all nations throughout history, but growing up in the 1960's and 1970's, it included a sizable Ukrainian population, fiercely proud of their or their families native country, its heritage and culture. In a country with a bilingual culture and history (English and French), it was indicative in Junior High School that we had a choice in the North End of learning one of two additional languages taught in our schools, in addition to English .......... either French ........ or Ukrainian, which I believe is unique in the entire of Canada.

But that illustrates just how important Ukrainians and Ukraine were and are to the fabric of especially Western Canada.

To this day, people of Ukrainian descent represent roughly 14.5% (180,000) of people in the entire of Manitoba. Having moved 30 years ago to the province of Alberta, it represents 9.3% (389,000) of people in this province, the largest single concentration of people of Ukrainian descent in the entire of Canada. My wife's first husband was of Ukrainian descent, of a family of 13, and I have many friends of Ukrainian descent, in addition to us, who are all contributing as we can to easing the suffering that is occurring there.

Our thoughts and prayers, in addition to our physical, emotional and spiritual support are with all Ukrainians at yet another tipping point in the history of the world.

Mark and Anne
