Ukraïns’ka dumka (London)
Ukraïns’ka dumka (London) (Ukrainian Thought). A weekly newspaper for Ukrainians in Great Britain, published in London since 1945. It has been the organ of the Association of Ukrainians in Great Britain since 1947. The paper publishes news of the association and articles on Ukrainian political and community affairs in Great Britain and elsewhere; it supports the positions of the OUN (Bandera faction). It also devotes considerable attention to cultural issues and publishes literary works. At various times the paper has included pages devoted to the Ukrainian Youth Association, the Association of Ukrainian Women in Great Britain, and the Plast Ukrainian Youth Association. The paper has been edited by an editorial board; since 1978 the board has been headed by S. Fostun. Circulation reached a high of over 4,000 in the late 1940s; since then it has dropped steadily.
