Voices From Russia, Too

29 November 2016. Echoes of the Past: Artek Pioneer Camp in the 1980s… “Our Earth is So Small. Why Do We Need Wars?”



Artek in the Crimea was the jewel in the crown of all Pioneer camps in the USSR. When the Ukraine took it over in 1991, they let it go to rack and ruin (they stole all the maintenance money and the Uniate Bandura Strummers just didn’t seem to know how to run it right). When the Crimea came home to the Motherland in 2014, one of the state’s first priorities was to put the neglect and decay at Artek right. They did so, and in short order, too! Artek is back up and running, as good as ever. It does speak volumes about the Galician Uniate nationalists and their rants, doesn’t it? Russia put it right; the “Ukraine” let it rot. That, to me, is the epitaph of the Galician Uniate project… may God cut it short to lessen the suffering of the peoples in the notional “Ukraine”. They didn’t deserve what they got after 1991…
