    Associatiations with Ukraine

    Hello,
    What sudden associations do you have when you hear "Ukraine "?
    I heard for some people it is almost or completely the same as Russia.
    So, do you clearly distinguish Ukraine as a separate country and what stereotypes, beliefs, good/bad things come to your mind hearing a word " Ukraine"?
    If you are lost listen to your heart

    Better not to go there.

    At this moment ukranians have a crysis of their self-identity, so the topic is really hot.

    No place for cold mind when emotions are involved.

    Thank you for your opinion! Why do you think it is better not to visit Ukraine? You see it dangerous? I would not say there is a crisis, yea, some people have taken new roles and new functions in society but most live the same way.

    Hm.. why have you moved my thread to Politics? My question wasn't supposed to be political. If i wanted to discuss current situation i would definetely mention it.
    Just to clarify my original idea:
    What associations do you have when you hear a word "Ukraine"? E.g some dishes, songs, places...
    P.S perhaps, you return my thread back?)) There more people will see it
    If you are lost listen to your heart

    When I listen the world Ukraine the first thing that comes in my mind: The most beautiful girls in the world.
    They are like Russian girls but they are more friendly (I suppose because the live more south and the weather is a little bit more hot).
    Regarding everying else as I don't distinguish between Russian and Ukraine.
    Different country- same or similar nationality.
    Different language but similar.
    Nonthing else.
    Чем больше слов, тем меньше они стоят.
