UKRAINE UNVEILS MEMORIAL FOR HEROES OF ANTI-BOLSHEVIK WAR. President Viktor Yushchenko on August 25 took part in an unveiling ceremony of a memorial for young Ukrainians who fought for an independent Ukraine in 1918 against the Moscow-led Bolsheviks, Channel 5 reported. The memorial was erected in the settlement of Kruti in Chernihiv Oblast, where in January 1918 several hundred Ukrainian students from Kyiv fell in an unequal battle against Bolshevik troops advancing on the Ukrainian capital.
