The Ukrainian Struggle: Freedom with Dignity Over Corruption and Power
Description: In 1998 Dr. Alexander Sich and his family returned to the U.S. from their first home leave overseas, for what eventually ended up being twelve years living and working in Ukraine—including experiencing first-hand Ukraine’s Orange Revolution. Recent events have rekindled memories of his Ukrainian experiences. He says that what Ukraine is experiencing now is not, as some outsiders might think, merely a new chapter in an old Cold War struggle between East and West. The protestors are fighting for more than freedom for freedom’s sake, but a freedom with dignity that has been out of reach for far too long. We talk to Dr. Sich.
