Many people from other countries think that Ukraine is poor and dangerous.
It is sometimes difficult to explain where Ukraine is. Foreigners associate my country with the war. It is terrible for me. That is why I want people from other countries to see Ukraine as I do: light, warm, with smell of honey and apples, with swallows in the sky and blooming gardens. Ukraine is NOT the war, Ukraine is peaceful and never aggressive. I love my Ukraine beautiful and independent!

‘Love Ukraine, like the sun,
Like the wind,the grasses and
In the hour of good fortune
And the moment of joy,
Love her in the moment of discord.
Love Ukraine in your dreams
And in fact,
Your Ukraine – cherry red,
Her eternal and new living beauty,
Her nightingale language’
By V. Sosiura ( Ukrainian poet, writer)
