Letters to the Editor

To the Editors:

In your story of the Kyiv Dynamo heroes, who suffered imprisonment and death for their soccer prowess and political courage, you did not refer to the men even once as Ukrainian. You referred to the team of the capital of Ukraine as “Russian”, “Soviet”, and “Kievan”, but not once as Ukrainian. I realize that Moscow for hundreds of years stole what it wanted from Ukrainian culture and destroyed the rest, but I thought that was over. Apparently not. Historical revisionism has not died. I am saddened, angered, and disgusted.
