Ukraine’s Friend & Foe Of The Week

Kyiv Post - - Opinion -

Ed­i­tor’s Note: This fea­ture sep­a­rates Ukraine’s friends from its en­e­mies. The Or­der of Yaroslav the Wise has been given since 1995 for dis­tin­guished ser­vice to the na­tion. It is named after the Kyi­van Rus leader from 1019-1054, when the me­dieval em­pire reached its zenith. The Or­der of Lenin was the high­est dec­o­ra­tion be­stowed by the Soviet Union, whose demise Rus­sian Pres­i­dent Vladimir Putin mourns. It is named after Vladimir Lenin, whose corpse still rots on the Krem­lin’s Red Square, 100 years after the Oc­to­ber Revo­lu­tion he led.
