A note of thanks to our readers


The staff of The Ukrainian Weekly expresses sincere thanks to all of our readers and social media supporters for their positive reactions to our 30th anniversary issue published on August 22. Space limitations did not allow us to publish all of the information we would have liked, and more coverage of the events leading up to the declaration of Ukraine’s independence on August 24, 1991, can be found in our newspaper’s digital archive at

And one note of clarification: our August 22 issue presented an abridged version of an extensive event timeline from the days leading up to Ukraine’s declaration of independence on August 24, 1991. The full timeline, prepared by Roma Hadzewycz, the former editor-in-chief of The Ukrainian Weekly and Svoboda, was first published in the book “Ukraine Lives!” The full text of the historical timeline can be found at  We encourage our readers to view the full timeline, which begins on page 10 of that book. The Ukrainian National Association is committed to supporting the study of the history of Ukraine and the Ukrainian diaspora in North America, and we encourage students, scholars and interested individuals to visit The Weekly’s various resources that can be found on our web site at
