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…

The never-ending wars and conflicts

By Vadim Dovganyuk

1914, it may seem like a random year I name, yet, it is not. 1914 is a very well known year because of the Christmas Truce(Weihnachtsfrieden, Trêve de Noël, Kerstbestanden), a truly remarkable moment during the First World War, which never happened again. Yes, it is actually possible, peace during war, and the reason why…

Behind closed doors

By Vadim Dovganyuk

It’s one of the moments in my life about which I say “wow, how lucky I am that it happened to me”, the moment I received an email of Elda Moreno from her official United Nations email (that she had back then). For those who do not know, she is the current Head of the…

Beyond what is regular

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Don’t take this the wrong way, but did you know that a needle could be used as a replacement of scissors or a knife? Probably your answer is no, and don’t worry, it is not something you need to know regardless. Seems like a ridiculous thing to even know, yet, if you are like me…

We were born to learn, but remain ignorant

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Ever heard of that saying that we were not born with ignorance, but we were taught to be ignorant? That saying kind of shows ignorance in its own, as it misses the point completely. The reality is that we were not born with the understanding of everything, meaning that we were actually born ignorant. Just…

Goal achieved, problem remains

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Over a year ago, I started the fight with anti-institutionalization organizations over the terms “Orphan” and “Orphanages”. An emotional fight, and a fight I didn’t believe I would even have any success at, which I only continued to stand up for because of an increasing amount of support I received from people all over the…

We don’t really know

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Note: Written in a currently hard time of my life. Because of that I lack focus, and it may have degraded my writing. My apologies if it has. We all think we know… I do, you do, and pretty much all of the world does. Which is no problem, if you are willing to understand…

My activism, my advocacy, my goal

By Vadim Dovganyuk

For some time I have been mainly sharing translations, and at my social media accounts, apart of YouTube, messages of hope and happiness. It may seem weird, as, to some, that is no activism and advocacy. Well, let me be clear, in the days of today, it is the only effective way of activism and…

We took away our own livelihood

By Vadim Dovganyuk

[Этот пост также доступен на русском языке.] Politics, politics, politics. Are you not getting bored by them? Please, don’t get me wrong, politics are important in life, but the fact that close to 100% of the world has no clue annoys me. Politics, the job of running an area, like a country, or at least,…
