I think we need to work up a working chart on Margo and Msolga, who I am crazy about both of. But people mix them up all the time and it must rankle. What do you think, eh?

It seemed a good idea to revive this thread, with all the interest in the Ukraine at the moment ... & also so many new A2Kers since this thread first appeared.

OK, then: Anyone with Ukrainian ancestry out there? Declare yourself! Very Happy

Or, is it remotely possible that we could have Ukrainians IN Ukraine online?

My fathers family came from Yalta in the Crimea. He was born there and left as a young man prior to WW1.

Do any of you have Ukrainian Ancestry?
Dobryy den! I'm not Ukrainian at all ( I was born in France of Eurasian descent but I've lived in the States for 15 yrs.) but I met a group of other wonderful youths directly from Ukraine during the summer through work (they were there as counselors, I worked in the arts/crafts building). It was such a pleasure for me to become acquainted with them and their culture and lifestyle. Before this truly wonderful experience I became fascinated by Russia and their culture and am planning a trip there in a few years. Then camp arrived, and I got to meet people from Russia's neighbor to the west- "Ukraniya". They taught me some more Russian words (I've been teaching myself this great language about one year before I went to camp) and one of them, who became close friends with, even taught me some Ukrainian words like "tak", "baba", "tato", "brat", etc. and introduced me to Ukrainian cuisine like borschh and perogies. She showed me some photos of Kyiv and it looked BEEEAUUTIFUL Very Happy She's even invited me to go over to Ukraine sometime soon and stay with her in her Kyiv apartment. Now I'm anxious to go over to both Russia AND Ukraine and get a brand-new taste of the other side of Europe. Would any natives of Ukraine, someone who's been to Ukraine, or anyone of Ukrainian ancestry please give me advice/info on what to bring w/ me on my trip, what to see, do, etc. or give me some useful websites on Ukraine travel? Also, if any, what are the cultural differences and similarities between the two former Soviet republics? Also if anyone here knows some simple Ukrainian words/phrases could you please post them somewhere on this forum? I'd say 'thank you' in Ukrainian, but I don't know how to (yet) and am not sure if it's the same as in Russian, but here goes-spasibo! I'd also like to give shout-outs to the ten friendly, gracious, intelligent colleagues I met last summer! :wink: Very Happy

Hello & welcome! I know how to say thank you in Ukrainian but have no idea of how to spell it ... It sounds something like: "Juk-i-you"! Laughing Despite having Ukrainian ancestry, I've never been there. But I just know someone here will have some good advice for you. Very Happy

Dear msolga, spasibo for the reply!

I truly hope others will continue discussing this topic.
