Whatever it takes to keep money out of Russia's hands! (y)

Chicago has a large Ukrainian community, and Ukraine's even their own neighborhood named after them (though it's since substantively gentrified). The divestiture is not unexpected.

A nice aspect of being in a large multi-cultural city like Chicago or NY, is the city & government reacts to world events like this in response to their ethnic citizens. Some appreciate being part of a world community, and I am one.
