Hope one day we will become much more civilized
About history, art and education I think your country is one of the best in Europe.

The problem is that politicians try to take all power in the country for their own benefit.
A country bigger then France and about 55 million inhabitants could be an important vote within the EU.

Talking about the meaning of the country: The Netherlands means Low Land while Ukraine means Border Land. You have one of the best soil/ground in Europe and could be again an important factor in agriculture.

It's also a pity a lot of companies went out of business after 1990. Also your own photoindustry Svema disappeared years ago.

Fotohuis is sending Europe wide which includes the Ukraine. I am just busy to arrange a Leitz 1C to Kiev.

I whish you all the best,
