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.

Animal welfare at risk as war in Ukraine continues

Animal welfare at risk as war in Ukraine continues

July 13, 2023

(Lviv, 13 July 2023) – Wildlife rescue and rehabilitation centers in Ukraine have become overwhelmed with rescue requests as a result of the ongoing war in the country. With the influx of wild animals in need and the continued destruction of facilities and lack of resources, it has become increasingly difficult for rescue and rehabilitation centers to apply the necessary welfare standards and practices.

IFAW is helping the facilities introduce better welfare standards for wild animals in captivity through a two-day conference in Lviv. IFAW is co-organizing the event with ICF Save Wild, the Ukrainian Bat Rehabilitation Center and BEAR SANCTUARY Domazhyr on July 13 and 14.
