The West Barely Cares About Ukraine

That’s a fact, and as someone who blogs about Ukrainian issues in English, I know this very well. Today I have been reminded about this fact by reading an essay collection by some Anglo Evangelicals, who say “crisis in Ukraine is grossly underpotted.

This needs to be understood, at the end of the day, the Anglos have a very little interest in our region, and barely know anything about it. I try to focus on more international issues related to Ukraine, and I think that publications like Buzzfeed, New York Times, VICE do an adequate job of reporting the crisis there, albeit often tinged with pro-Western propaganda about the conflict (or rather conflicts) there. I quote from them regularly. Also, if anyone is interested in Ukraine, there is a wealth of material in English out there. Not that the Western public cares enough…
