My friends or some students asked me “Do you like our country?” sometimes. It was difficult question for me. However now, I can say “I love Ukraine”.
What is the definition of “a country”?? Culture, History, Politics, Situation…there are a lot of elements. For me, the meaning “Country” is “People”.
I could meet a lot of people in Ukraine. And they showed me “Ukraine” from their point of view.
It is not only traditional things. Some friends brought me to the place they like or showed me some photos of their family or friends. And all things they told me were important elements to understand the country for me. I tried to understand Ukriane through “people”.
I really love friends in Ukraine.
That’s why, I can say “I love Ukraine, especially Ivano-Frankivsk”
