The Bond Between Appalachia And Ukraine On This West Virginia Morning


On this West Virginia Morning, the Russian invasion in Ukraine is sending shockwaves throughout the world, but did you know there is a region of Ukraine with close ties to Appalachia? We explore this relationship.

Also, in this show, four educators from Marshall University joined a virtual panel to discuss Russia’s ongoing invasion of Ukraine. Following the panel, Marshall students and faculty gathered in the Memorial Fountain Plaza for a candlelight vigil.
