Weekly news digest (December 3 – 9) The situation in the ATO area remains complicated and unstable.

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.

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...

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"...

You may know about the situation in Ukraine. I would like to outline the main points about circumstances in the East of Ukraine and Crimea on November 5th – 12th. A violent change is being observed in the Eastern Ukraine after the November 2nd “elections in local governments” in Donetsk People's Republic and Luhansk People’s Republic. DPR and LPR are self-proclaimed republics on the territory of Ukraine. But there is no country in the world which declared that. Large scal...

I believe everyone has a great potential inside and is capable of succeeding. But there can be people who need a stimulation or someone’s encouragement. And it is not a sin to be like this! Good Will Hunting is an 1997 American drama film directed by Gus Van Sant and starring Robin Williams, Matt Damon, Ben Affleck, Minnie Driver, and Stellan Skarsgård. The film received universal critical acclaim and was a financial success. It was nominated for nine Academy Awards, including...

Dear friends ! I am happy to make a little post for you again after a long time of absence. Since the last time I wrote here I have understood a lot of vital things about life. And everything I have found was subsequently of my own observation. I made sure that friendship and peace in soul are important components of happiness. And I would like to introduce one lesson I have got today. I have found a big amount of books in a flat I rent. They are different. There are scienc...

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...
