Sev-enty years of Soviet control of Ukraine ended in 1991 with the collapse of the Soviet Union. During that time Ukraine suff ered extensive famines, deportation of its citizens, and repopulation of its country by ethnic Russians. Since independence, Ukraine has aligned more with the west, resulting in escalating tension between ethnic Russians and Ukrainians. Russian president Medvedev has warned ominously of " serious con-sequences" if Ukraine joins NATO and Russia shut off gas supplies to the country in early 2009. Join Active MindsR as we explore this very delicate situation. Sponsored by the Jeff erson County RSVP Program. First Presbyterian Church of Lakewood, 8210 W 10th Ave, Lakewood.
