This was made by several Russian fans of the genre for some obscure rock band with propensity to swear words — and it looks surprisingly neat.
About a decade ago, I scanned this fierce lady in the Ukrainian traditional head wreath with the Ukrainian emblem tattooed on her shoulder and a cuff with Skythian pattern out of the calendar in Ukraine’s only comic book magazine.
Just came across this music video — it is about a decade old but I loved the song then and I love it still, and the video warrants some interest, too.
This is a music video by a beloved Ukrainian (ironic) rock band TIK (which is an abbreviation for a Soviet-times phrase Sobriety and Culture) that depicts a story of a single village woman, who ordered herself an android with adjustable strength, intellect, and sexual prowess (shown on her tablet) but ended up…
This is a Chamber Orchestra ‘Renaissance’ playing the Game of Thrones title song live in an actual working steel foundry in the steel plant in Mariupol, which is actually mere 20 kilometers from where the front line lies with the Russian troops shelling the Ukrainian territory.
This adorable collection of photos of beloved monsters and maniacs and even Leon and Matilda with her toy bunny and gun is, in fact, an actual graduation album of high-schoolers in Ternopil (that is Western Ukraine).
My brother, a policeman as of recently (here in Ukraine our new police is really big deal!)
I came across this video by chance — and was fascinated. Such extravaganza of self-directed irony, subtle social commentary, and eye-popping color!

I like ads like this — gender-sensitive, fun, and without objectification of women (and men in princess dress are always welcome!). I wish more ads were like this. It is an ad for Ukrainian mineral water, which I used to love — but ever since the manufacturer was purchased by a Russian company I had to give it up.…
Germans learned it the hard way.
These are actual Mongolians doing a cover of the old
Dschingis Khan’s hit ‘Genghis Khan’. In Mongolian. In armor and stuff.
I was browsing through entries to the Ukrainian show ‘Voice of the Country’ (you know the type) and was struck by a really great cover of the beloved Ukrainian rock ballad that felt like a James Bond opening song.
This weekend, on the second KyivComicCon, the Kyiv-based creative collective UGAR Production announced their new project — the first ever Ukrainian steam-pun comic book.
This one is played on the Ukrainian traditional instrument — bandura. It is very versatile and rich in sound.
This cake by a Ukrainian master won the first place in the cake competition in Poland. It is like a living cartoon. (Found it here.)
Actually, what I like in this ad is the Khotyn castle in Western Ukraine. It was built in the 13th century and is still in a pretty good shape.
