To the editors:

What was to have been an informative article regarding Alderman Luis Gutierrez’s trip to the USSR and Ukraine [May 3] turned out to be another example of “Ukraine” bashing.

I refer to Harold Henderson’s continuous use of that colonialistic “the” with the name Ukraine. And Jaroslawa Johnson should know better than to use it.

We Ukrainians are tired of the Anglo-Saxon media relegating the country Ukraine to a regional or provincial status by its usage of that insulting article “the.”
