Ukraine and the Struggle (War) for Civilization

Excerpts from “Anti-Ukrainian or The Will to Fight, Be Defeated or Be Betrayed” by Dr. Oleksandr Savchenko:

It is possible that the victory of the new, pro-Western, progressive forces on the home front is still not a guarantee of the success of Ukraine.  History teaches and both the first and second (Revolution of Dignity) Maidan revolutions especially show that Russia, as the citadel of the “Russian World” or Moscovy Orthodox civilization, always supports reactionary forces and counterrevolution in Ukraine.  And, if this is not enough, Russia always instigates war.  The Revolution of Dignity for the first time in world history brought Ukraine into the main arena in the fight for civilization (for now in the form of a hybrid war from the side of Russia).  I will set forth my view of this process.

Victories and Treason: From Revolution to Counterrevolution

Excerpts from “Anti-Ukrainian or The Will to Fight, Be Defeated or Be Betrayed” by Dr. Oleksandr Savchenko:

What haven’t the nationalist and patriotic forces (and I consider myself to be one of them) been able to do since independence?  Why hasn’t Ukraine become a member of the European Union?  Why did Ukraine end up the poorest country in Europe at such a breakneck speed?  In my opinion, the main problem with the Ukrainian nationalist/patriotic forces was the weak will toward power: we loved Ukraine, freedom and democracy more than the power that would have guaranteed their preservation.  Romanticism held dominion over rationalism within the Ukrainian nationalist/patriotic forces, and the word ruled over action!

Excerpts from “Anti-Ukrainian or The Will to Fight, Be Defeated or Be Betrayed” by Dr. Oleksandr Savchenko:

The Soviet Union was created in 1922 and was, in essence, a radical modification of the Russian Empire.  This was the same Russian Empire that was rebuilt on the bedrock of Marxism-Leninism.

Know Your Ukrainian Partner

February 21, 2017

Foreign investors often make their first, and potentially the worst, mistake by entering into agreements with Ukrainian partners without knowing anything about them.  Some of the questions they should have asked include: is the company on the letterhead actually registered?  Who are the real owners?  What do they own?  Have they ever been sued for non-payment?  Who are they connected with, if anyone?  Truthful answers to these questions can often prevent disasters that all too often await the investors down the road.  Fortunately, there are three different options for foreign investors to learn this vital information.

Agency Relations in Ukraine

February 7, 2017

Many foreign companies prefer to hire Ukrainian agents instead of registering a representative office or a limited liability company.  In fact, the least expensive way to enter the Ukrainian market is by retaining a reliable local agent: no need for company registrations, directors or accountants, and no local taxation.  Simple, right?  Like everything else in Ukraine, however, this seemingly easy task is highly regulated and requires attention in order to avoid problems.  Below we summarize the key issues in finding a reliable local agent.
