So, I thought about tacking this onto the other post, or about delaying the other post to another day and talking about this, but this is something I've been thinking about a lot lately... and I felt like it deserved its own post and not being tacked onto the other.
One of the dealers I've been using a lot, a dealer Mike and I have both liked using and discussed in the past, a dealer that has supplied several of the coins in my Zimbabwe coin set and has sold me many raw Venezuelan coins for that new projects... is in Ukraine!
I did some looking online and they list their location as Zaporizhia, Ukraine. I decided to Google where that was, hoping, for their sake, that it was in the Western half of the country.
It turns out they're almost directly North of Crimea and the Sea of Azov, Northwest of Mariupol - the area that has been getting shelled so bad, and South of Kharkiv - where I think that nuclear plant got shelled and taken over. So they're right in the middle of all of it, with conflict on 3 sides. It has me wondering how they're doing out there.
