Weekly news digest (December 3 – 9) The situation in the ATO area remains complicated and unstable. During December 3-7 there was a strong tendency towards the escalation of the conflict; the ATO forces were heavily shelled: December 4- 71 time, December 7 – 87 times. The DPR and LPR rebels continued to shell civilian objects. The “ceasefire” has so far resulted in the death of 93 civilians, 520,000 became IDPs. Still, 684 are held in captivity and 1600 are missing....

Do one thing! I’ve been thinking about this urging affirmation for some time now, trying to figure out what I would like to urge people to do. And I reached the conclusion that I would like people to try and see things from others perspective. To begin with, this activity, of trying to walk into somebody else’s shoes is of the utmost importance. We are all humans and consequently we are defined by our interactions with others. And, unfortunately we haven’t build yet a machi...

I have not written an article on the topic “Is it controversial” and I think it is time to do it. The last days discussions with another students about education in Ukraine suggest me an idea to share with you. The main issue which was considered is tuition fee for higher education. There is about 2.7 million students and more than 950 higher education institutions in Ukraine. Country’s expenditure on education is 6.2 % of GDP. It is more than in Italy, Germany, Franc...

Terrorism is hurting our world, it’s harming our children, and it’s killing us every day. Thousands or may be even millions of children are suffering because of terrorist groups, because of some people who thought they represent God; any way, killing, bombing and murdering other people is unacceptable, I don’t care about their reasons, I don’t care about their justifications and excuses, it’s just unacceptable no matter what. I feel really bad when I hear about terroris...

Recently, I was fortunate enough to attend a TED talk about education. As a student, I found it extremely rewarding and interesting. I thought I'd share the TED talk of Steve Brown, the Founder and CEO of Ignite Channel, with you! What drives your passion and motivates you? Why do you do what you do? Most answers, whether it is good grades or a higher salary, trace back to man’s seemingly innate pursuit of money, power, and status. Steve Brown contends that these values have...

Let me introduce the city where I study - Lviv. It was founded in 1256 by the King Danylo. The name of the city was given in honour of a son of Danylo - Leo which means "lion". There are a lot of epithets towards Lviv. The name "Lion City" is the most common.. From time to time there are used such comparisons, names and phrases like "city of lions", "city of sleeping lions", "the Royal city", "pearl of the crown of Europe", "Town-Museum", "the capital of Galicia", "small Paris"...

Recently on 5th December, 2014, we observed "International Volunteers Day" with the theme "People's Participation. Make Change Happen, Volunteer!". Being a youth & a volunteer myself, "International Volunteers Day" was of great importance to me. As I have been placed as an ICS (International Citizen Service) volunteer via Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO), Nepal, I have got to learn more about the importance of volunteering for the change especially in the developing country...
