Ukrainian Culture As an Asian, Ukrainian food is completely unfamiliar to me. However, out of respect for Ukrainian culture, I decided to learn. It took me a whole day (+1 week of fermenting kvas) to make holubtsi and Christmas borscht, but so worth it!gallery
After donations reached these soldiers at the front, they decided to all sign this beautiful flag and have a relative mail it to me. It was truly a surprise and an honor! I pray they are all still safe and healthy. слава україні. героям слава
Ukrainian Culture The bravery of Ukrainian women fascinates me. Their determination, strong will, and still sensitivity and care... Olha Pilyuhina is a unique weaver from Poltava region. She strongly rejects to leave her home, even if there’s a war – this is her land, and she feels deep ties to it.youtu.be
This isn't a very serious question... But there isn't a ukranian language sub as far as I can see, sorry.
My new colleague is a lady who left Ukraine. She mentioned to me that everyone here calls her her full name and it feels very formal and strange. Her name is "Kseniia." And she told me that friends at home called her... Something. Like "Ksusha" maybe. I would like to be able to call her a name that she likes and is less formal than her birth name. She said I am her friend so I don't think this is inappropriate.
To be clear, I am certain this is not a pet name just from parents or husband, for instance, she said her colleagues etc called her this. The same as if my name was Robert my friends would call me Bob. I am not trying to be too familiar or "flirt."
I am too embarrassed to ask again what the short version of her name was because I asked/tried a few times when we had the conversation and I didn't remember it.
Could someone tell me what the/a short form of her name would be that would be appropriate for her friends. (Again, not a cute name that a boyfriend would use or something.)
I've been watching 'Servant of the People' on Netflix and I've noticed numerous times that when someone is addressing another individual they call them by their full name (First and Last) or just talking to them in general. Is this a common thing to do in Ukraine? To refer to people by their first and last names during conversation?
