 ~ HONORING UKRAINIAN POET DMYTRO CHYSTIAK ~

 

 Letter from the Publisher

Welcome to Syndic No 48

Ukranian Poet Dymtro Chystiak,  a close personal friend  of  our own Syndic Poet, Bill Wolak, has reached out to Syndic Literary Journal asking for any assistance we can provide to bring attention to,  and  stop  the indiscriminate  around-the-clock of  Russian bombing Ukranian citizens designed to slaughter them to accept submission.

In 2022, who can believe that Russia’ s  Putin could be so corrupt and depraved that he would don the mantle  of Adolph Hitler to slaughter men, women and children on  his march to achieve whatever power he feels entitled to.

Truthfully, what can Syndic Literary Journal do  in the face of this pogrom? The only answer is we must do whatever we can, we cannot be passive,  sitting on the sidelines waiting for others to act.

For our part, Syndic Literary Journal has decided to honor the resistance and bravery of Ukranian Poet Dmytro Chystiak by publishing his poetry and hope that we can engage Poets around the world to speak out against these unspeakable tragedies that have befallen our Ukranian brothers and sisters.

We ask you please, please circulate Syndic No.48 as far and wide as you can possibly do so! As if your life depended upon it!
