Recently returned from Ukraine in October, after two years in the Peace Corps, Matthew Corliss of Pocasset will give a presentation on Ukraine at UUFF on December 11, at 7:00 PM. He will start with a brief history of the country and its demographics, but will concentrate on the current situation with Russia, Europe and the US. Corruption, the war with Russia, and its ties to Europe will be discussed. The understanding of these issues from the Ukrainian perspective will be highlighted.
Mr. Corliss is a mid-career returned Peace Corps volunteer who grew up in Bourne. He speaks both Ukrainian and Russian. He taught English in a village in Odessa, a primarily Russian-speaking region. It should be a fascinating evening.
