Ukrainian turmoil felt in Salem


Both Morris and Sacharuk are resigned to the possibility that the Ukraine’s fate may not be determined by Ukrainians alone. Sacharuk despairs of relying on the influence of the European Union or the United States.

But if the Ukrainian government aligns with the European Union, said Morris, “they can’t steal anymore.”

“Russia is a very powerful country,” Sacharuk said. Oil wealth gives them added clout. He salutes the efforts of his former countrymen nonetheless.

“Freedom isn’t free,” he said. “You’ve got to fight for it. I’m proud of them.”
