First Parish in Bedford is hosting a two-part presentation on Ukraine:   Sunday, Jan. 29 and Sunday, Feb. 5 from 1:00 pm – 2:30 pm.

Vlad Shapiro, a Ukrainian-American from Kviv, will speak briefly about the root causes and current state of the Russian invasion in Ukraine.  Vlad will also provide background on cultural & historical differences between the Ukraine & Russian populations, Ukraine’s place in the global economy, as well as key information about Ukrainian culture and traditions.
