    How to say in Spanish...

    How to say Ukraine in Spanish? My dictionary doesn’t have it. They think Ukraine is not that important to be in a dictionary. Bastards
    One Mexican-American girl told me it is Ukrainia, but another girl said it is the same as in English. I just want to say: Yo soy de…

    Ukraine in Spanish can be said both ways, with "k" or with "c". I think both are admitted by the Language Academy, though I

    To the Lamb,

    I am sorry you are mad because in your English-Spanish dictionary you couldn't find the correct translation for Ukraine. And to make it worse, some Mexican-American girl didn't even know the correct pronounciation and the right adjective. Something must be done on the matter!

    I understand you perfectly well because I have an Ukranian friend who is very upset when they ask him if he is Russian. He very politely, but in a strong way, answers back he is from Ukraine, and very proud of that.

    Unfortunately people in Mexico generally believe Ukraine and Russia are the same thing, maybe because it has recently, well fourteen years ago, become an independent country. The Orange Revolution in some way has helped open my country's eyes that Ukraine is very different from Russia and in some way has the same problems your people face. It is not very easy living close to a powerful country.

    I believe in Spain, they understand much better the difference between Russia and Ukraine, as they are much more closer and have received a lot more immigration form both countries.

    I do find Ukrainians to be very different from Russians, something like Mexicans from Cubans or Spanish from Portuguese.

    So, Ukrainians all over the world will have to continue their efforts to make the world understand they are an independent country, very proud, they are close relatives to Russians, but different on their own.

    I don’t get upset when someone asks me if I am Russian. In some way I am (my dad is Russian, my mom is Ukrainian). I love Russian language and culture as much as I love Ukrainian language and culture. But it does upset me a little bit that many people
    believe Ukraine and Russia are the same thing
    And I do believe Ukraine deserves to be in a Spanish dictionary

    I'm a native speaker of spanish. If you want to say I'm from Ukraine, you must say: Yo soy de Ucrania (No k, please). If you want to say I'm ukrainian:

    "Yo soy ucrania" o also "yo soy ucraniana" (women)
    "Yo soy ucranio" o also "yo soy ucraniano" (men)
    "Жди, когда других не ждут,
    Позабыв вчера.
    Жди, когда из дальних мест
    Писем не придет,
    Жди, когда уж надоест
    Всем, кто вместе ждет.

    Жди меня, и я вернусь,
    Не желай добра
    Всем, кто знает наизусть,
    Что забыть пора".
