HORT TAKES ON THE DRIFTING WRECKAGE – OVERNIGHT:

A GOOD GUY IN A BAD SITUATION – FROM COLLEGE FIX: A University of Pittsburgh economics professor and ex-Ukrainian government official has jumped into action, raising a reported $5 million in humanitarian aid and reporting from the scene as bombings continue. “You understand what is happening, right? Both countries are prepping for a continued war. Russia scrambles troops from possibly Syria, tries to provoke Belarus to join,” Professor Tymofiy Mylovanov tweeted Friday from Ukraine. “Ukraine has mobilized 100s of 1000s reservists and they have been training these two weeks. (We are safe for now).” Mylovanov is an associate economics professor at the University of Pittsburgh and president of the Kyiv School of Economics in Ukraine. He is a Ukrainian citizen who splits time between Pittsburgh and Kyiv and was in the country when the invasion occurred and now must stay and help fight, TribLive reports. In a telephone interview with The College Fix on Friday, Mylovanov declined to say where exactly in the country he is, citing safety concerns. He said everyone is traumatized and worried, and there is tension everywhere.   I hope he's welcomed back to his campus as the hero he is, but the left will probably find a way to reject him.
