The Ukrainians

The Ukrainians
 
Ukrainian mentality was formed influenced by many factors: geographical location at the crossroads of the West and East, specific climatic conditions and complex, at times tragic historical destiny. Since time immemorial Ukrainians have been known as hardworking, thrifty, skilled farmers emotionally affiliated to their native parts, good family men and devoted wives. They are typically kindhearted, friendly, hospitable and well wishing to both fellow countrymen and foreigners; they are cautious yet inclined to romanticism and sentimentality. But come the time of ordeal, and they are determined, resourceful, brave, slaunch, ready for self-sacrifice.

Among themselves, despite their inherent emotionalism, Ukrainians have always valued restraint, consideration and a realistic view of life. They have a very special sense of humor. They can be bitingly ironical. Theirs is a very rich imagination reflecting the surrounding realities in a colorful way.
