Observations of Winnipeg doctor, A.H. , who recently returned from Ukraine where he was part of the Canada Ukraine Foundation medical mission.
My apologies… this will be a long post…
Just returned from Ukraine and many are asking how things were over there… what kind of patients did I see… how is the morale of the people?
I thought I’d share a few general observations and some of what we did via this forum.
We were based at Kyiv’s Central Military Hospital… an institution that is older than the United States!!! (Taras Shevchenko was treated here!) and for the first couple of days, we assess patients re. their injuries and suitability for the OR. I was overwhelmed by the patients I saw. All are young… at my age I would call them children. These children are victims of war; 18 year olds irreversibly physically scarred by the fire of RPG shrapnel and psychologically by the death and destruction around them in the east of the country. Psychologically, they seem stable but the monotone, barely audible quality of their voices… their inability to look you in the eyes… leaves no doubt that PTSD burns underneath.
The scars are both visibly and morally appalling. Within 2 hours I have seen 2 young men whose FACES HAD BEEN COMPLETELY BLOWN OFF by the power of man’s seemingly inexhaustible desire to destroy others. Simply imagine: Their faces had been completely blown off!!!! Read the rest of this entry »

Few people know that Stalin had built a huge army with Holodomor money and planned to seize all of Europe after invading Poland, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Finland.

Canada has the distinction of building the first concentration camps for innocent civilians and they were recent Ukrainian immigrants.

Key UA defense spokespersons are now searching for volunteers to serve as trainers in all aspects of ‘low intensity warfare’: “….experts from Canada, the U.S. and other English-speaking countries for the training of the Armed Forces of Ukraine”…..”professionals with skills in tactical military operations by small groups in urban, industrial areas, forests, steppes, forest-steppes.”
This is very serious.
US-AM vets “who could be of potential help” would be those who served in Vietnam, Grenada, Panama, Desert Storm, Somalia, Haiti, IFOR/Bosnia, KFOR/Kosovo, Iraqi Freedom, Afghanistan……
US-CA vets would have served in Desert Storm and the Afghan campaign…..
UA-UK vets would have served in Malaysia, Indonesia, Falklands, Desert Storm, Iraqi Freedom, Afghanistan
UA-AU vets would have served in Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Desert Storm and Afghanistan
PLEASE DISSEMINATE WIDELY…..AND HAVE THE MENTIONED VETS OF THE NAMED COUNTRIES CONTACT THEIR NATIONAL VET ORG COMMANDERS
Russian invaders admit to their KGB generals that they have shot down a jet full of innocent men, women, and children.

A Letter to Russia from Donetsk
Denis Kazanskyj, for Ukrainska Pravda _ Monday, July 14, 2014, 16:15
[translated from the Russian original]
It just so happens that I am a native of Donetsk. That is nothing to be particularly proud of, but it’s a fact. I would still be living at home if a bunch of crazy fanatics supported by Russia had not arranged a war in my hometown and brought in Russian mercenaries.
Now there is a nightmare. Well, that you do know. That is what you are shown on your TV all day long, with disgusting details. So it’s better that we talk about what you are not being shown.
About 7 years ago I thought the same way as the majority of Russians. That thinking was typically Soviet. This is not surprising given that I have lived in the Donbas since birth.
Although I went to school after Ukraine’s independence, my education was typically Russian-Soviet. I was reared on Russian films, Russian music, and Russian books. I have long considered Russia a friendly country, a closely related country. But now all that is in the past.
Now I, those who are close to me, and the millions of Russians and Russian speakers in Ukraine would never dare to call you a brotherly people.
