Andriy J. Semotiuk: Roman Kupchinsky's lessons for Ukraine today
There is a saying that good friends are difficult to find, more difficult to leave and impossible to forget. No truer words were spoken about Roman Kupchinsky (1944-2010) for those who knew him.
Many may die in the course of one’s lifetime, but few deaths like his, mark the passing of an era.
Today, as we stand shoulder to shoulder with those who seek to defend Ukraine in the face of the naked aggression on her border, we still find it hard to fill the deep cavity that Roman’s passing left behind in our ranks.
