West Ukraine’s Banderstadt shelters East Ukraine’s refugees

It is hard to find much that is positive in current Ukraine events. But in this story I wrote, an NGO in Ivano-Frankivsk is setting a fantastic example of crisis management and cross-sectoral cooperation to provide accommodation and services for a flood of refugees. And I do like the irony of housing east Ukrainians fleeing ‘banderites’ in a hotel called ‘banderstadt’.
