An existence of such a culture...

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...

I sure a lot of people or have never heard about this country, or heard a little (for example only about of the tragedy in Chernobyl, or know something about our famous sportsmen (Andriy Shevchenko, Vitaly and Volodimir Klichko and so on).
