Pigeon Rescued in Hawk Attack.

Hi, on Oct 24, 2023, this pigeon fell from the sky, tumbled off our roof top, and hit the  ground. It was attacked by a hawk who was sitting on the roof top waiting to finish it off. We chose to take care of it after saving it. It had a damaged wing and could not fly. The hawk clawed into it and fractured its wing in mid flight. It was, in fact, a racing pigeon. It will never race again. We thought about taking the pigeon to the Animal Rehabilitation Centre but since two previous birds with similar wing injuries that we brought there were euthanized, we decided not to go there and give this bird a chance.

Holodomor: EU Parliament recognises Soviet starvation of Ukrainians as genocide

Holodomor: Parliament recognises Soviet starvation of Ukrainians as genocide

Press Releases
  • Current Russian crimes in Ukraine reminiscent of the past
  • Call on all countries and organisations to also recognise the Holodomor as genocide
  • Russian regime manipulates historical memory for the purpose of its own survival

MEPs deplore that 90 years after the Holodomor, Russia is again committing horrific crimes in Ukraine.

 In a resolution adopted on Thursday, the European Parliament recognises the famine inflicted by the Soviet regime on Ukraine in 1932-1933 - known as the Holodomor - as genocide. MEPs strongly condemn these acts, which resulted in the deaths of millions of Ukrainians, and call on all countries and organisations that have not yet done so to follow suit and recognise it as genocide.

Ukraine in the XX century inter World War period. A History Lesson by Askold S. Lozynskyj


The territory of today's Ukraine in the XX century inter World War period was split essentially between a repressive Polish dictatorship and a savage and genocidal Soviet Russian regime. Small portions were under Czechoslovakian and Romanian control. In the case of the Soviets, some 7-10 million Ukrainians were starved to death in the 1932-33 years alone. The Molotov Ribbentrop Pact between Berlin and Moscow of September 1939 changed the political map but did not mitigate the dire conditions governing the indigenous Ukrainian population. When Poland was ousted, its repression was replaced by Soviet savagery.


In 1939 the Soviets brought their genocidal policies into Western Ukraine, populated primarily by Ukrainians in the villages and Poles and Jews in the cities. The Ukrainians and Poles were fiercely persecuted. Jews in great numbers served their new masters. When the Germans reneged on their Soviet pact in June 1941, the Soviets chose to retreat employing a scorched earth policy. Many Ukrainians and Poles were simply slaughtered.
