Dispatches from Ukraine

Ukraine Featured Image

Sgt. William McNulty, co-founder of the humanitarian organization Operation White Stork, based in Kyiv, Ukraine and Poland, describes the way his organization organized over 20,000 evacuations from Ukraine into neighboring countries and is now helping with repatriation, as people return home. White Stork also provides first aid kits for Ukrainian soldiers on the front.

This show has a trigger warning; McNulty describes how rape is being used as a tool of war to introduce Russian blood lines into Ukraine. He also describes how the Russian Army has booby-trapped and looted towns and homes they occupied.

Anne Levine, US media contact for Kraina FM in Ukraine, a 22 city radio network, provides VOICES FROM UKRAINE: a series of cutting edge interviews with key people in Ukraine, arranged by Kraina FM. The interviews give a direct and personal account of the unfolding of the war in Ukraine, how professional rally to serve their community, and the destructive toll taken on ordinary people subjected to war atrocities.

This series of interviews is a collaboration between Anne Levine, WOMR, Pacifica Network, and Kraina FM.
