The Russian and German ignorance regarding Ukraine

By Vadim Dovganyuk

It’s unlikely you are not aware of the most popular claim about Ukraine among pro-Russian trolls, the claim of neo-Nazism supposedly reigning in Ukraine. It’s a claim that traces all the way back to when the conflict between Russia and Ukraine officially started, which is even used to attack Ukrainian Jews, as we supposedly would…

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…

Trump and Migration: His acts oppose his words

By Vadim Dovganyuk

When it comes to (Donald J.) Trump, there is a lot of ridiculousness. Like how he called for building a wall that already is there… And how he claimed climate change was a hoax… However, how many have gone as far with fact-checking everything and noticed he speaks against his own family over, and over,…

The forgotten way: Syncretism

By Vadim Dovganyuk

The first time I noted being a syncretist, people were surprised, some even not actually aware of what it means. Syncretism is the practice of combining different beliefs, and yes, I am adherent to it. It’s essentially the opposite of the so-called “Third Position”, which is all about opposing and dividing those of the “regular…

The unseen bigger picture

By Vadim Dovganyuk

After all the horrible discrimination I have seen at the USA, I wish I could ask one of those people a simple and straightforward question, which is: “Are you against migrants?” The reason for that simple question is because the answer quite likely will result in anything meaning “yes”, at which moment a simple fault…

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…

To the United Nations: Stop the confusion!

By Vadim Dovganyuk

For about a year already, I’m actively fighting anti-institutionalization campaigns who incorrectly use the word “orphanage” instead of “children’s home”. I’m happy that more and more campaigns, charities, and foundations are opening their eyes, and are attempting to use it correctly. This includes the Lumos Foundation, which I have criticized harshly through time, primarily as…

No oppression? You even know your own facts?

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Do I support Putin? – Nope. Do I support Poroshenko? – Nope. Do I support Trump? – Nope. Do I support T. May? – Nope. Do I support Trudeau? – Nope. Do I support Netanyahu? – Nope. Do I support Rouhani? – Nope. Do I support Xi Jinping? – Nope. Do I support Merkel? –…

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,…

USA: Is the Russian Influence really that new?

By Vadim Dovganyuk

Russia did this to America, Russia did that to America… That is what I see all over every social media platform ever since the election results… And all I can do is… Laugh… It is silly that people are actually shouting out that the American elections were rigged by Russian influence, as even if they…
