 An alert reader has asked why I've dropped "the" in front of "Ukraine."

It's because another alert reader, Ginger, who is affiliated with Indiana University and one of my many Bloomington friends. She noted that Ukrainian students at the school have noted the difference.

Russians for decades have used "the" in front of "Ukraine" to imply the country is merely a region of Russia. This an insidious campaign that goes back to Stalin, who sent millions of Russians into other countries in the Soviet Republic to undermine their autonomy.

By using just "Ukraine," we acknowledge the sovereignty of Ukraine. I've only recently learned this.

Another IU professor educates us at this website: The Politics of “Ukraine” Versus “the Ukraine” - SAPIENS

Thanks, IU folks, for all you've done for me -- which often included buying me beer.

Pease unto Ukraine and peace and education unto all of you my brothers and sisters.

  1. I find it interesting that Noam Chomsky has said that the only USA political leader ( including Pelosi and Biden and both DEMs and GOPs) that is and has been right on the USA's policy towards Ukraine is Donald J. Trump. Why don't you give us your insights on this too! How about your wise folks from I.U. who got you to eliminate "the"?

  9. I remember in 2023, my credit score was terrible, I had so many collection accounts and would not approve of anything. I had rental debt, charge offs, student loans, tax liens from my credit report. I was then introduced to DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION by Michael Wayne who is my attorney. I immediately contacted them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / +1 713 396 5299. Within 9 days my credit score went up from 571 to 801 across the 3 credit bureaus and I’ve been able to get a home loan and eligible for several credit cards. I will always recommend DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION to anyone who desires to have a better credit life. Cheers!

  10. Hi, guys, let’s talk about the FICO score, those important 3-digit numbers that determine your quality of life no matter your status. Well earlier in 2023 I had a really bad credit score. I would often surf the net searching for real hackers that could help increase my credit score. Well as expected I got swindled twice. Eventually I gave up my search and concluded that it wasn’t possible for hackers to increase credit scores. The good news is that I read on a credit forum about DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION. I was pessimistic at first, but I decided to give it a try. To my greatest surprise, within 9 days DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION was able to boost my score to an excellent score, not only that they added some positive remarks on it. In conclusion, if you have a bad credit score you might want to contact them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM OR Call (713) 396-5299.

A high FICO score is very important and this company to the best of my knowledge understands how to make it happen, how do they do it? I don’t know but honestly, they did a great job of getting my credit score up to 806 excellent score. Not just that they also removed negative items on it and wrote some very positive ones. DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION has done it for me and I want the word to know about them. Contact them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / TEXT +1 (713) 396-5299. Ciao!

  12. Hello guys my name is Lynne Riley, a few weeks back my credit score was nothing to write home about, my credit score was around 520 TransUnion, 517 Equifax and 600 Experian. I had a lot of collections, old phone bills, negative rentals on my rental report. I was on a credit forum in reddit when a lady wrote about DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION how they got to clear her debts and increase her score to a high 800. I quickly contacted them for repair assistance, to which I got a response. To my greatest surprise DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION cleared out all negative items on my credit report and increased my score to 801 TransUnion, 808 Equifax and 811 Experian. They also posted a very good trade line on my report. They are the best of the best. Hit them up via email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM OR Text +1 (713) 396-5299 and have your credit fixed today.

  13. Hello everyone! Ok…I’ll try to shorten this as best I can. After many years of marriage, I finally got divorced about three years ago. My ex-wife had major spending issues. Both of us have very good jobs. She is a physician and I’m a pharmacist/software engineer. We are both high earners, but she spent like the money was endless. We had a $2 million home in Miami, new cars every couple years, and her credit card spending was out of control. It was to the point that she was racking my credit cards up as well. I finally decided enough was enough and I left. Moved to the other side of the country with extreme amounts of debt. In a two years period I paid off almost $240,000 of debt. Some of it had gone to collections, and some of it had not. But my credit score was in the toilet. I have been a software engineer for a long time. I had not practiced pharmacy in many years though I kept my license active. My software engineering has always been around pharmacy systems. So, I started working three jobs. Software engineer during the day, working as a pharmacist part time during the evenings and weekends, and doing telephonic patient counseling for medication. I was constantly tired. But paid off every penny of the debt I had including student loans. I owe no one anything now. The real problem was my credit score was in the mid-600s. That was equally embarrassing. I went a little crazy looking for hackers to help me increase my credit score until a colleague recommended DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION to me. I quickly searched about them and discovered they had so many positive reviews that I quickly contacted them by email: DOVLYCREDITSOLUTION@GMAIL.COM / I also gave them a call +1 (713) 396-5299. They responded swiftly, and I explained my predicament to them, which they accepted to boost my credit score to an excellent score. To my greatest surprise after 9 days, I got a call from them by 7:00AM to confirm my current credit score, which I quickly logged into Credit Karma and discovered my score has been boosted to 800s across the credit bureaus. They also deleted all the collections and inquiries on my credit report. I have no regrets working with DOVLY CREDIT SOLUTION. Hit them up if you have any credit related issues. I’m now well qualified credit wise.

  15. Today I called PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST and asked to have my BK7 removed from my CR, and they did. It was scheduled to fall off next year. So that’s that. A horrible chapter in my life but I’ve come out on top. So much wiser, better prepared for the future, and peace of mind where finances are concerned. Thanks to this forum and the good folks that spend their time here to share their experience and share the knowledge they got from PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST. Thank you PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST for all your assistance, guidance and cheerleading. Especially in the early days of my rebuild. With my scores now in the 800’s I’m tempted to app just to know I’d likely be approved, but there’s nothing I need right now. A sincere thanks to all of you! Contact them by email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM / Or call +1 (409) 231-0041.

  16. The lots of debt on my credit report deprived me so some many opportunities. Long story short I had 14k in CC debt, 30k in student loan debt, not great. I was low income/living beyond means while younger, perfect payment history last 7 years, no delinquency, charge offs, bankruptcy etc., no negatives other than balances, I think. Fico 8 was high 500s (599 EQ, 595 TU, 590 EX). After my mum told me about PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST, I reached out to them immediately with the proposal, after about 6 days I was sitting here Netflix and chill when I get a notification from PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST to pull my report. Yes, my scores are now (801 EQ, 809 TU, 811 EX) I shed in tears the goal was to be among the 800s club before the end of the year which has been achieved. You can contact him via: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM Or Text +1 (409) 231-0041.

  17. After my marriage 3 months ago, I applied for a home loan, so that my wife and I could move to a better apartment, but I got a negative reply, which I was told was because of my credit score. When I pulled my score, it was below average. I have a $10,000 student loan, some credit card debt, charge-off and an eviction. PINNACLE CREDIT SPECIALIST helped me erase all the above negative reports and boosted my score to excellent within 6 days. I’m recommending them to any person in need of credit assistance. Contact them by email: PINNACLECREDITSPECIALIST@GMAIL.COM OR their mobile: +1 (409) 231-0041.
