So live your life….

Whether ’tis nobler in the mind to suffer

The slings and arrows of outrageous fortune,

Or to take arms against a sea of troubles

And by opposing end them.

Ey, this is special what’s happenin’ to all my

All my Ukrainian soldiers over there on Donbass…

It may seem blasphemous to walk around the center of Kyiv today, when our Ukrainian soldiers bear all the burdens and hardships of the war with the Russian occupiers.

Cossack-harakternik

The sun, overcoming its usual path across the sky, rolled down, behind a dark strip of forest. Its last rays softly enveloped the dense thickets of reeds on the river bank.

Two mermaids sat on wicker chairs in the reeds. The eldest of them, ugly in appearance and almost disgusting, burned a pipe and slowly told the young and beautiful ancient stories from the life of mermaids.

The Art of Free Flight or a Brief Essay on the True History of Ukrainian Aeronautics

Taras Macondo, Yana Motovylo

First line

Located almost on the very Ukrainian-Romanian border, the village was called Shuyan (do not think, nothing to do with the French Chouans). In this small Transcarpathian village, no one has ever heard of a seagull named Livingston, nor of the Glittering World. Not to mention all sorts of Ariels, Phaetons or ordinary Indian levitation enthusiasts.

The vast majority of residents were interested in used Mercedes, frontier trade and petty smuggling. The contingent of the village consisted of pragmatic, cunning and suspicious people. In short, philosophical reflections and spiritual quests were not in trend here.
