A special place in Hell

In November 2007, I was on my way to visit the worst of the worst of camps from Stalin time. The Kolyma gold mines were the worst in the Slave Empire of Stalin, but within this Hell on Earth, there was a special place. The Butugichag uranium mine. Andrei Vasilievich Kravtsiv told me about his experiences in that horrible camp, while we were sitting in the comfortable and warm Catholic Church in Magadan. Winter was

A general offended a priest.

‘The general used a chain of obscenities in the language of the foreign country, which is a perpetual enemy of the independence of Ukraine’. This a best definition of the Russian language spoken as native by the majority of Ukrainian citizens. | detail
