Dr Olesya Khromeychuk and "The Death of a Soldier Told by His Sister" in conversation with Peter Barron

A fundraising event in aid of Ukraine

 

Dr Khromeychuk has written a poignant account of the fight for Ukraine’s sovereignty through the personal account of her own brother’s death in Eastern Ukraine in 2017 while he was engaged in combat. Killed in action as he served in the Ukrainian Armed Forces, Olesya Khromeychuk’s brother Volodya Pavliv died on the frontline in eastern Ukraine in 2017. As Olesya tries to come to terms with losing him, she also tries to process the Russian invasion of Ukraine: as an immigrant living far from the frontline, as a historian of war, and as a woman, a civilian, and a sister.

Olesya will be in conversation with Peter Barron, MBE, Editor of the Northern Echo for 40 years and Deputy Lieutenant of County Durham

The money raised by this event will be shared between the Richmondshire Refugee Support Group’s ‘Power to Ukraine’ appeal, which is sending generators to communities across the country, and the Ukrainian Institute London, a UK charity.
