Video: Local Ukrainian Comments on Russian / Ukrainian Situation

COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI) — Ukrainians here in the Golden Triangle are worried about the escalating conflict. George Pinchuck is a professor at Mississippi University for Women and grew up in Ukraine. He believes more needs to be told from the Ukrainian perspective.

“I want to see, uh, Ukraine a full member of the European community. Ukrainians to make their side of the story better known in the world. And that’s where actually the American media can help in that,” said Pinchuck.

Pinchuck also says he’s concerned about Russian President Vladimir Putin’s actions after he seized control of the country’s Crimea region. He hopes Ukraine maintains its independence.
