Has this influx, by process of dilution, killed that identifiable accent? Not yet. Here's why.

Ilya Kaminsky on dissent, war, and resistance

“Poetry now is as necessary as ever.” Ilya Kaminsky on dissent, war, and resistance

A few days after Russia invaded Ukraine at the end of February, a poem about complacency called “We Lived Happily During the War” went viral.
