Re: Makhuldyur project in Crimea


As was announced in a recent FM Alert bulletin, the Ukraine's
International Renaissance Foundation, a part of the Soros foundations
network, has allocated $430,000 for 1998 programs that promote
the reintegration of formerly deported peoples in the Crimean Peninsula.

Launched last June, the program, "The Integration of Formerly Deported
Crimean Tatars, Germans, Greeks, Bulgarians and Armenians into the
Ukrainian Community," funded 63 projects during the 1997 fiscal year,
worth about $380,000. Projects aim to promote tolerance, improve mass
media standards and promote the cultural revival of formerly deported
peoples.  While the Crimean Reintegration program would not fund
massive infrastructure projects, it might conceivably fund initial
assessments, preparation work, feasibility studies, etc. of a
cultural/economic development program such as this one.  It is certainly
worth inquiring.
