“The hope for an optimistic
future, which glimmered in the eyes of the young and the
older protestors of EuroMaidan, has abruptly turned into
despair… Today, I believe it is fair to say that no one
has any idea what the future holds for the citizens of
Ukraine. These are historic, yet frightening, times.”
This was my opening paragraph in the February 2014 issue
of Our Life.
As of January 1, 2015, Ulana Zinych, UNWLA First
Vice President, reluctantly resigned from her post
due to personal reasons. Both personally and on
behalf of the entire UNWLA leadership, I would like
to thank Ulana Zinych for her dedication to the
organization by filling the post of First Vice
President since May of 2008. We are
most fortunate that Roma Shuhan, UNWLA Honorary
Member and a longtime member of the Executive
Committee, has agreed to assume this post. We look
forward to working with her.
You will be missed, Ulano!
