Add the problems because of depleted soil, soil polluted by Soviet Industrialization and Chernobyl's meltdown, this Arctic blast could create a humanitarian emergency for these brave, but already beleaguered people. Secretary of State Clinton is making efforts on behalf of Madame Tymoshenko, as is the EU and other western powers, but Ukraine is a nation of Farmers, and is my hope the Farmers of this nation will find ways to reach out with support for Ukraine during this troubled time.
