PARSIPPANY, N.J. – Subscribers to the print edition of Svoboda, the Ukrainian-language newspaper published by the Ukrainian National Association, earlier this year received the 2019 Almanac of the UNA.
This year’s Almanac is dedicated to the 125th anniversary of the Ukrainian National Association; it includes several articles related to that milestone and the UNA’s continuing leading role in the Ukrainian community.
Other sections of the 256-page Almanac highlight the historic events of 1919 in Ukraine, such as the Act of Union of all Ukrainian lands into one Ukrainian National Republic, the Chortkiv offensive, Symon Petliura and the fate of Kyiv during the years of the revolution.
Also noteworthy is a section about the 80th anniversary of Carpathian Ukraine, Zenon Stakhiv’s account of Taras Shevchenko’s participation in the Aral Sea expedition of 1848-1849, an article by Orest Deychakiwsky about 100 years of U.S. congressional support for Ukraine and a chapter containing biographies of prominent Ukrainians (Ivan Kotliarevsky, Panteleimon Kulish, Omeljan Pritsak).
