Remember: you are not a sheep and you are able to make choices to live in a country you want. This is the message of a video which has been made to motivate people before the Ukrainian parliamentary elections which will be held on 26 October 2014. An initiative exists in terms of a Ukrainian project “Rock the vote”. There is a similar one in the USA. Project “Rock the vote” is intended to lay the foundation of a new electoral culture. An existence of such a culture...

Imagine that you greet a person in the morning and suddenly you find out the person’ is dead in the evening. I passed through such a feeling a few days ago. My friend was hit by a motorcycle while crossing a road. She died instantly. I saw few quite cruel photos of the event. Her name was Nadiya which translation into English is “Hope”. The girl studied with me in the university. She was making research about the history of her native village. She was crossing a road...

Lviv is one of the most beautiful cities of Ukraine. It is very attractive because of great architecture and history, and there are also a lot of events which unite people and give them pleasure. Lviv is known as the coffee capital of Ukraine. There is even a festival dedicated to the aromatic beverage. This event was founded in 2007, and thus this September we had the eighth feast. Coffee is a hug in a mug. (Author Unknown) The purpose of the charity art project "Make coff...

Have you heard about such an organization as FEMEN? I would like you not to have. I will explain why I wish that later. Let me introduce FEMEN for the beginning. It is “an international women’s movement of brave topless female activists painted with the slogans and crowned with flowers. FEMEN female activists are the women with special training, physically and psychologically ready to implement the humanitarian tasks of any degree of complexity and level of provocation. FEMEN...

August 24th is Independence Day of Ukraine. There was a concert of one of the most famous bands from our country. The band is called Okean Elzy. In honour of the day, people sang the anthem of Ukraine. *** Here is a translation below Ukraine is not yet dead, nor it's glory and freedom, Luck will still smile on us brother-Ukrainians. Our enemies will die, as the dew does in the sunshine, And we, too, brothers, we'll live happily in our land. We'll not spare either our...

Invasion of Russia to Ukraine does not surprise me. Through history we see an obsession to possess some territory of Ukraine. And that wish was satisfied. There are general things, and I am not going to retell events which have happened. I would like to share with you what is going on here today. Let me tell you a brief history. The protests began on November 21, 2013 in response to the decision of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to suspend the process of preparation for...

@MariaJoseCelis wrote “Do one thing: volunteer” in her article ( http://www.voicesofyouth.org/en/posts/do-one-thing--v..- ). After reading this I decided to tell about my own experience. I work with people who have special needs. Due to Wikipedia special needs “is a term used in clinical diagnostic and functional development to describe individuals who require assistance for disabilities that may be medical, mental, or psychological.”. Thus those are people with Down s...

I believe you know about dangers which can be in social networks. But I would like to tell you a little story I heard lately. It is not up to me to say where I found it out as any recording was not allowed at this school. This story is about tricking in facebook. One band of journalists created a faked page with news. Some of photos and texts were very provocative and a lot of people wrote to leaders. There was one man and he sent a message where he asked for a job. He was a...
