I am pleased to announce the following new pages on the Pine Tree Web.

The Scouting-Plast organization is the largest Scouting organization in
Ukraine with a tradition going back to 1911. They are working actively
towards affiliation with the World Organization (WOSM). The English language

cooperation with its English language editor, Lubomyr Onyshkevych, and the
Plast-Scouting organization in Ukraine.
