Manor College will host its Ukrainian Dialogue Series, presented by the Ukrainian Selfreliance Federal Credit Union, on Thursday, March 21, 2019 at 5:30 pm. The topic is Kyiv Patriarchy and Russian Aggression in the Kerch Strait.
Paul Grod, President of the Ukrainian World Congress, and Rev. (Douglas) Anthony Perkins, Ukrainian Orthodox Rector, Professor, and Vocations Director and retired US Army intelligence, will make up the panel moderated by the Honorable Roman Popadiuk, former US Ambassador to Ukraine.
“We have a niche in the academy” said Manor College President, Dr. Jonathan Peri, “because we focus this series on the challenges and opportunities presented in Ukraine. More than ever Ukraine is on the side of truth. Last week Ukraine’s President Poroshenko told us that the death toll at Ukraine’s eastern border is upwards now of 13,000 men, women and children. It’s up to us in America to shed light on Ukraine’s suffering at the hands of a foreign aggressor; and it is up to us to continue to bring incredibly talented people to speak at Manor, like UWC President Paul Grod, Rev. (Douglas) Anthony Perkins, and Ambassador Roman Popadiuk, so that they can share informed insights and offer prescriptions for peaceful and effective pathways forward.”
Past workshop topics have included the following: Hacking and the New Russia, Moving Beyond the Failed Minsk Process and Ending Russia’s war in Ukraine, America’s Relationship & Moral Obligation, and Education as the Battlefront for Democracy.
“The Ukrainian Selfreliance Federal Credit Union (UKRFCU) is proud of its strong partnership with Manor College. The UKRFCU strongly believes in the objectives of the Ukrainian Dialogue Series as a way to engage and progress conversation about Ukraine,” said Anatoli Murha, Director of Business Development, Ukrainian Selfreliance Federal Credit Union. “Both Manor and the UKRFCU embrace their Ukrainian heritage. As such, this is a natural partnership that we are committed to supporting.”
The Dialogue is free, open to the public, in English, and will be held on Manor College’s campus in the Basileiad Manor Library Lecture Space. Register here: https://manor.edu/about/ukrainian-dialogue
