The reason why I disconnected

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Today everyone just assumes they know, even though in reality we are more often unaware of what’s actually going on than we are aware. 1 word is enough and facts won’t even matter anymore. Somehow people just know, even though they don’t truly do. It leads to us not daring to speak, we struggle in…

The lacking equal of equality

By Vadim Dovganyuk

You are likely to have noticed it by now, people who state by which pronoun they want to be named. I can understand it, to be honest, it’s hard being called a he while being a she, and the same way the other way around. Still, I can’t deny that I am not someone who…

Our first giveaway: High-end headphones

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Headphones, you don’t need to be an audiophile to know that the quality is very price-dependent. You can get them as cheap as literally a Euro (or an equivalent amount in other currencies), but that doesn’t mean they’re good headphones. Broken cables, blown-out speakers, and more problems are common among cheap headphones. That being said,…

Yes, this song’s music video was released minutes ago, and here it is as song of the week. Yes, song of the week, as temporarily the song of the day has become song of the week. I shouldn’t be in a need to explain this, as the holidays are here again.Oh, and no subtitles this…

Recommended good causes – Ukraine

By Vadim Dovganyuk

If there’s 1 thing most people know about me, it’s my dedicated support towards charities. In light of this, I eventually added a list of recommended charities to the top menu here on my blog, not just nationally here in Ukraine, but even internationally, including in the country most might not have expected of me,…

I bid you farewell Twitter

By Vadim Dovganyuk

5 years ago, I started out on the Twitter social media platform. At this time, I was officially too young to be using this website, which eventually came back to bite me when the European Union (EU) introduced the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), which left me several weeks without a Twitter profile, until I…

Chrismukkah – An interfaith event, or maybe not?

By Vadim Dovganyuk

This year, (Western) Christmas (25 December – 6 January) and Hanukkah (22 December – 30 December) collide again.It’s not as bad as it’s going to be in 2024, but okay…(Eastern Christians celebrate Christmas from 7 January to 19 January, hence the “Western”.) Now, personally, I don’t officially celebrate either, as I’m a Karaite Jew.That being…

My choice of life and the future

By Vadim Dovganyuk

This is a cross-post, which was first published at my Facebook profile. I usually don’t share more personal parts of my life publicly, instead I tend to keep them to Instagram and Facebook. However, this share was reacted to more actively than any of my shares before. Hopefully you enjoy it as much as my…

Song Translation: Yes-R ft. Chantal Janzen – Vecht Mee

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Foreword This song was made 12 years ago in support of the Dutch Fight Cancer Foundation. And after all those years, there is still no English translation to be found anywhere. And that hasn’t gone by unnoticed. Hence I received the request to do this translation.This was instantly accepted by me, because of the ongoing…

My answers to 111 random questions

By Vadim Dovganyuk

A friend sent me these 111 random questions, which I have answered. It’s probably a good way to learn some things about me that you previously didn’t know. Some of the questions have typos. I haven’t fixed those for authenticity. (Neither my own, to be honest…) 1) What’s your full name? – Vadim Dmitrievich Dovganyuk…

The UK and their opposition of the deinstitutionalisation movement

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Remember this article? https://researchingreform.net/2018/05/03/charity-labels-all-children-in-care-future-criminals/ It was published by Researching Reform over a year ago, when I noted Natasha about the offensive texts UK-based charity Love Russia used for their campaigns. Now we are about a year forward in time, I got noted by a British friend about a 2-year-old article, which makes that act seem…
