Disputing allegations made by previous letter writers


Dear Editor:

I believe that as a responsible, independent newspaper you have an obligation to demand from the writers to your editorial board factual information. Unfortunately, on at least two occasions, in letters to your editorial board, Mr. Mirchuk (January 17) and Mr. Martyniuk (January 29) made unsubstantiated, provocative allegations against our president, Joe Biden. They claimed that he blocked Ukraine’s military response to the Russian annexation of Crimea.

I request that you demand from Mr. Mirchuk and Mr. Martyniuk some evidence for their assertions. Failing to do that, they should apologize for spreading false information about our president, who unlike his predecessor is firmly committed to Ukrainian independence and is not a buddy of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin.
