From November 1, this site will no longer be used for my articles. I am closing both Current Politics in Ukraine and Current Politics in Belarus, and replacing them with a more personal site:
DAVID R. MARPLES BLOG
This site will combine essays on Ukraine, Belarus, Russia, and more general issues. Many articles will be shorter than in the past but they will appear more frequently. It is free of any affiliation whereas Current Politics in Ukraine was the original blog site I used while at the Canadian Institute of Ukrainian Studies as the Director of the Stasiuk Program for the Study of Contemporary Ukraine.
Please resubscribe! I will be very happy to continue our association and links.
