Sergey Melnikoff is a US citizen with Ukrainian ancestry, a former GULAG death row prisoner,
who escaped from the Soviet Union with his family and found asylum in the US. Sergey has been closely following the struggle
between Russia and Ukraine, a breakaway breadbasket and an industrial heart of the ex-USSR. He has always been rooting for Ukrainian
independence from Russian influence and its movement towards Western civilization: for over 70 years the Soviet occupation brought terror,
hunger, death, plundering to the Ukrainian nation and its rich land.
