CUÞÞ |n the Th|rd Decade

CUPP |oundor and dlroctor
Welcome to the 2011 Canada-
Ukraine Parliamentary Program
Newsletter, Ìssue # 1. The CUPP
Ìnternship program has entered
its third decade of operation in the
House of Commons.
Each year, since 1991
university students from Canada,
Ukraine, the Diasporas of Armenia,
Azerbaizhan, Georgia, Western
Europe and this year for the frst
time from Russia, have come to
Ottawa to experience Canadian
democratic governance from
inside of Parliament Hill.
As Ìnterns, the students work
for Members of Parliament from
the Government and Opposition
benches in the House and
Senate. They regularly meet
with the Speakers of the House
of Commons and the Senate,
Cabinet Ministers, MPs of all
parties, key government offcials
such as the Auditor General, Ethics
Commissioner, and journalists
of the Commons press corps.
The students have access to the
diplomatic community of Ottawa
through regular meetings with
representatives of the Embassies
of France, Germany, Ukraine,
United Kingdom, and the United
States of America.
Ìn addition by meetings with
Crown Corporations, the Supreme
Court of Canada, NGO's,
Canadian Banks, ÌT companies
and other Canadian institutions the
students are exposed to leaders
of government and industry and
representatives of Canada's public
and private sectors.
For 21 years, each Autumn and
in some years in both the Spring
and Autumn Sittings of Parliament,
as well as during Federal and
Provincial Election campaigns, the
students are given a unique and
privileged opportunity to work in
Parliament, contributing directly to
Canadian public life, sharing with
the MPs and others information
about Ukraine, discussing Canada-
Ukraine relations, studying the
Canadian Parliamentary and
elections systems and comparing
these with their own.
Some of the students com-
plete an additional Ìnternship in
Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine' Parlia-
ment), the Bundestag (Germany's
Parliament), The European Parlia-
ment in Strasbourg and are able
to make an informed comparison
and evaluation of the changes
needed to be made to Ukraine's
parliamentary and election system
to make it more representative and
transparent.
The Canadian Ìnternship is a
unique learning experience and for
many a life changing experience.
Their educators and most of
their Members of Parliament are
Soviet era schooled and trained.
These soviet era teachers and
politicians are not able to pass on
to the new generation precepts of
parliamentary democracy, Rule of
Law, civil society or democratic
and free market principles from
personal knowledge or experience.
And to learn about these important
elements of an open and normal
society the students of Ukraine
must be exposed and given the
opportunity to work in Canada's
Parliament.
Over 700 students from Ukraine
and the Diasporas have had the
opportunity to come to Parliament
Hill. They have learned important
lessons about western democracy
and acquired new life skills. They
enriched the knowledge of MPs
and all whom they have met, about
Ukraine and the aspirations of
the new generation of Ukrainians
who are struggling to move out
of the Soviet mindset. All Ìnterns
have returned to their homes
and universities to complete their
degrees and have started to make
their own contributions to the
development of their homeland.
Some of the Canadian trained
students have continued their
education and development in
public life by working in the Euro-
pean Court of Human Rights in
Stras bourg, the World Bank in
Washing ton and London, the ÌMF
in Washing ton, the Bundestag
in Berlin, Verkhovna Rada,
the European Parliament in
Stras bourg, and universities of
Oxford, Cambridge, Amsterdam,
Harvard, Saskatchewan, Toronto,
Georgetown, Johns Hopkins,
McGill, Western Ontario, Boston,
George Washington, Chicago,
Colum bia, Berlin, Maastricht, War-
saw, Vienna, Algarve, Edinburgh,
Bocconi, Pennsylvania, London,
LSE, Trento, Deusto, Texas, Bran-
deis, Geneva, Paris, Leuven, Luga-
no, Dundee and other prominent
centres of learning.
Canada has given a new ge-
neration of young Ukrainians a
springboard and armed them with
expertise to return to Ukraine and
make changes. This new gene-
ration of Canadian trained and wes-
tern educated individuals can now
make Canada proud by sharing
their knowledge, energy and initia-
tive with their peers in Ukraine for
the beneft of their homeland.

Outstanding Iandmark or architecture in ItaIy:
Fontana di Trevi in Rome. Ìt is simply the triumph
of Ìtaly's artistic beauty and heritage. Every time Ì
pass by its extraordinary architecture moves me.
The marble talks to you and inspires you to respond
with your aesthetic sense. And at the corner of this
grandeur you fnd a vase that explicitly does not ft
into the general architecture: it was placed there by
the architect Salvi so that a curious and troublesome
barber who had his shop close by could stop peeping
at the fountain and criticizing it. Ì fnd it very amusing
and fascinating that even behind the genius of Ìtalian
artists there were also ordinary men with their every-
day bore.

Outstanding Iandmark or architecture in Ukraine:
The Residence of Bukovynian MetropoIitans in
Chernivtsi is a masterpiece of architecture built to the
design of Czech architect Josef Hlavka in 1864-1882.
The residence is an outstanding monument in many
aspects: urban, architectural, artistic, engineering
and technological. The Orthodox Metropolitan's
Residence was the biggest orthodox centre in South-
Eastern Europe in its time. Ìts architecture combines
historical traditions from the Byzantine Empire, the
Roman period of monastic construction, the brick
Gothic of Central and North-Eastern Europe as well
as displays elements of the Baroque period. The
architectural spatial characteristics of the Residence
were the reason it was called the 'Miracle of the
East'. After the Residence was built Chernivtsi got
the metaphorical name 'Jerusalem on the river Prut'.
On October 4, 1875 in the former Residence
of Bukovynian Metropolitans, Yuriy Fedkovych
National University of Chernivtsi was established.
On June 27, 2011 the architectural compound of
the Residence was included on UNESCO's World
Heritage List.

GoIden Gate is a unique architectural fortifcation,
which was constructed between 1017-1024 and
served as the main grand entrance to Kyiv. The
name Golden Gate reminds us of the famous
entrance gate to Constantinople. The ruler of Kyivan-
Rus Yaroslav the Wise wanted to demonstrate
to the world that his country was as powerful as
the Byzantine Empire. With the great tower gate
and the Church of the Annunciation the structures
delighted contemporaries and terrifed enemies who
recognized the gates inaccessibility. The Golden
Gate witnessed many important historical events and
after its restoration is open to the public today.

Outstanding Iandmark or architecture in Ukraine:
Together with the city of Lviv, Chernivtsi is today
considered to be cultural centers of western
Ukraine. The city is also considered to be one of
Ukraine's greatest modern cultural and educational
centers. Historically, as a cultural and architectural
center, Chernivtsi was once dubbed 'Little Vienna',
'Jerusalem on the Prut' and the 'European
Alexandria.'
Theater Square in Chernivtsi is a harmonious
architectural ensemble with a small public garden
in the centre. Silvery fr-trees and colourful fower
beds with blooming roses create the perfect
atmosphere for relaxation, and in the evening tourists
are attracted by the "Avenue of Stars" dedicated
to outstanding artists whose careers began in
Chernivtsi. The pearl of Theater Square is the Olga
Kobylyanska Drama Theater, built in 1904-1905 by
renouned architects Ferdinand Fellner and Hermann
Helmer, masterminds of 48 theaters and houses
throughout Europe, including the Odesa Opera as
well as Ballet Theatres in Vienna, Sofa and other
cultural centers of Europe. Equally attractive are
the buildings of the Jewish National House (now the
Culture Palace) and the Romanian People's House
(now the Offcers' House). On the opposite side of
the square, surrounded by the twin houses is the
old Chamber of Commerce (currently it is Bukovyna
National Medical University).

Outstanding Iandmark or architecture in Ukraine:
Pip Ivan observatory. At the top of Pip Ìvan
Mountain stand the remains of a former Polish
astronomic observatory, an unfnished construction
from 1936. The Observatory walls are made of
limestone blocks to a thickness of 1,5 m on the level
of the underground foor and 1m at the ground and
frst foor levels. Ìt is a two-storied construction on
the East perimeter and a fve-storied construction on
the West perimeter to conform to the natural slope
of the land. The two tier sloped roof was covered
with copper plates. The telescope was located in
the rotunda, which faced south. Building materials
were brought from the railway station of the town
of Vorokhta through forest paths, with the help of
Hutsul horses or by manual labour. Great effort
was made to transfer 33 trunks of instruments and
supplies with dome elements to the summit of Pip
Ìvan. The biggest shipment weighed 950 kg. The
inauguration of the Observatory took place on July
29, 1938. When World War ÌÌ started observatory
workers evacuated the most valuable instruments
and equipment. At the end of 1939 the construction
stopped and the remains and equipment were
left behind on Pip Ìvan and were appropriated by
the Soviet government. Ìn May 1942, the metal
components of the astrograph were moved to Lviv.
To the present they have been kept in the building
of the Physics Department of University of Lviv in
Kyrylo and Methodij Street. One observatory was left
standing but vandals removed everything of value
including the dome and the copper plates on the
roof. There has been no astronomic activity since.
Tourists, who visit this once interesting site, arrive
at the remains of a White Elephant. They wish for
some basic amenities such as running water were
left intact since after a vigorous and long trek up the
mountain a refreshing shower would be welcome and
a cherished dream. The ruins of the observatory are
covered by snow for a long period of the year. That
is why it is called a "White Elephant¨.

Korniakt's tower was built in 1572-1578 by the
architect P. Barbon on the donations of K. Korniakt, a
rich merchant of L'viv, and was named in his honour.
On his order a huge bell, 2 m in diameter, was
forged; it was called Kyrylo. The tower was used as
a belfry and a guardhouse. The tower is square in
its foundation; it stands 65 meters high and has four
levels of different heights. From its very beginning
this Renaissance building dominated in the silhouette
of L'viv and up until now it remains the architectural
symbol of the city. Ìts picture was on the coat of
arms of Stavropihiyske Bratstvo ('brotherhood'), a
public organization of the Orthodox L'viv citizens and
craftsmen, that was established at the Assumption
church in the mid 16
th
century. The main task of the
Brotherhood was to develop and promote education,

Outstanding Iandmark or architecture in

Gorgolewski. He pleasantly surprised the jury by
planning to locate the building in the centre of the
city, although it was already densely built-up. Ìn
order to solve the space problem, the architect
proposed to enclose the Poltva River underground,
and instead of using a traditional foundation, he was
the frst person to use a concrete base. Construction
continued for three years. Gorgolewski directed
construction, earthwork and decorating tasks,
employing the leading masters from Lviv and abroad.
Eventually it was opened on October 4, 1900.

The Mharsky Monastery was founded in 1619 near

Ìsaia Kopynsky and Petro Mohyla's cousin, Rayina

was to establish a center of Orthodoxy in the eastern
part of the Polish Lithuanian Commonwealth. The
Baroque catholikon (main church) was built in the
early 1680s with funds generously provided by
Hetman Ìvan Samoylovych. A renovation was later
undertaken by German architects who designed the
seven-domed church and the neoclassical bell tower,
completed in 1845. During the seventeenth and

History of CUPP
On July 16th, 1990, the Ukrainian Parliament adopted the Declaration of Sovereignty which declared that Parliament recognized the need to build the Ukrainian state based on the Rule of Law. On August 24, 1991, the Ukrainian Parliament adopted the Declaration of Independence, which the citizens of Ukraine endorsed in the referendum of December 1, 1991. Also in 1991, Canadians celebrated the Centennial of Ukrainian group immigration to Canada. To mark the Centennial, organizations planned programs and projects to celebrate this milestone in Canada's history. The Chair of Ukrainian Studies Foundation of Toronto decided to mark the Centennial by establishing the Canada-Ukraine Parliamentary Program for university students from Ukraine. The Canada-Ukraine Parliamentary Program gives Ukrainian 2

students an opportunity to work and study in the Canadian Parliament, and gain experience from which generations of Canadian, American and West European students have benefited. On the basis of academic excellence, knowledge of the English or French and Ukrainian languages, and on interest in the parliamentary system of government, university students from Ukraine can apply for a CUPP scholarship. It is hoped that CUPP will contribute to the education of future leaders of Ukraine. In 2011, in the 21st year of CUPP's operation, 35 students will arrive from Ukraine, Germany, Italy, UK and Russia to complete a two-month internship with Members of Parliament, Ministers and Senators (please see Issue 1 of the Newsletter for complete list of CUPP Interns). In the course of the Program, the Interns meet with political and social opinion-leaders of Canada. PARLIAMENTARY PROGRAM
