And yet some of Viktor Yanukovych’s critics will not sleep calmly once they read the commentaries that have been printed in the West regarding this event. “Don’t they understand anything?” they will ask, irritated. Yanukovych’s administration […]

The Great Snow of Kyiv: Stories in black and white

It had all started with a joke. “Some snow yet. Hopefully, there will be less in the summer,” said a friend of mine on March 16th, looking at a snow cloud over Kyiv on a web forecast. “Well, it happens,” I thought, knowing there had been something in the media about a snow storm in […]

Easter Folklore in Lesser Poland

Easter celebrations in Catholic and orthodox countries are often extremely fascinating with respect to their cultural heritage. They remain less commercial than those at Christmas, and much more mysterious; Easter is connected to death and the resurrection, two taboo concepts even in the most secularised societies.
