The March 15 issue of The Economist has an article that mentions "Little Ukraine, a pocket of Manhattan's East Village" as well as "Veselka and Ukrainian East Village for varenyky (dumplings) and borscht." The Ukrainian Museum is cited as a venue being visited by many to learn of the resilience of Ukrainians.
