Our May 19, 2014 USA Melting Pot meeting on Ukraine – The Current Situation was our best meeting so far, with great information shared by everyone on the panel and Jerry Benge, who introduced the topic. As Jerry suggested, I will be praying for the outcome of the elections on May 25, that the people of Ukraine and the international observers would be kept safe, that peaceful democracy would prevail, with the rights of minority opinions protected.

We hope Borys Potapenko has a safe trip to Ukraine Thursday. Thanks to everyone for being on our panel, asking good questions and participating in the meeting!

Thanks also to Martin Howrylak and members of the Ukrainian-American community for passing the word about this event.
