Ukraine Research Group has an ambition to post more information about Ukrainian culture within its blog, which we feel is an important task. Unfortunately, three decades into Ukraine’s independence, the culture of the country is hardly well known around the world. We have reached an agreement with our colleagues in Canada who produce extremely well-researched and understandable videos clarifying some aspects of Ukrainian culture and history. With their kind permission, we are going to share some of their admirable and much needed work. We are especially grateful to Prof Marko Robert Stech who is one of the key people in the project and has kindly authorized the publication of the videos in our blog.
