Do you think you know Ukraine? Take this quiz and find out



[WpProQuiz 1]
Dear readers! Since you’ ve made it to this point, we have a favor to ask. Russia’s hybrid war against Ukraine is ongoing, but major news agencies have gone away, which is why it's extra important to provide news about Ukraine in English. We are a small independent journalist team on a shoestring budget, have no political or state affiliation, and depend on our readers to keep going (using ťhe chance - a big thank you to our generous supporters, we couldn't make it without you). We are now $5,000 short of our financial goal and need your support to continue working. If you like what you see, please help keep us online with a donation!

    Too easy, I got 100% without effort, although I am a beginner. Knowledge of Ukraine should be more challenging!

  2. Avatar Randolph Carter says:

    Crap – missed the one about Antonov aircraft and Ukrainian magazines. Thought perhaps the dwarf’s crackdown on Ukrainian in Crimea was more widespread, and never heard of Antonov aircraft (hangs head in shame). And I worked for Lockheed too!

  3. Avatar Dirk Smith says:

    Missed two as well. Missed the nickname and the Jewish center location. Another reason I’m re-visiting next spring! 🙂

  4. Avatar Randolph Carter says:

    Dirk, would you mind if I ask where in Ukraine you’re going? I have a girlfriend in Lugansk and would give just about anything to see her!

  5. Avatar Gryzelda Wrr, D.O.P.* says:

    Missed the one about Jewish museum 🙂

  6. Avatar Robert says:

    Hmm… I missed the last one. I didn’t realize 90% of magazines in Ukraine are published in Russian!(?) Wonder why this is? I too will be traveling to Ukraine when the weather breaks in the spring. Any hints on the best way to learn Ukrainian language? …

      Find an Ukrainian girlfriend that does not speak (or doesn’t want to speak) Russian…
      -and start at home to learn the alphabet, ESPECIALLY the ‘written’ letters!-

    100% Not too shabby for a damn Yankee!

  9. Avatar Rascalndear says:

    It’s not “the granary of Europe”!! What’s that, a bad translation? It’s “the breadbasket of Europe.” The answer to the first question is NONE OF THE ABOVE!!!

    #3 should say Pivdenmash, not Yuzhmash.
