You're reading: Little things mean a lot in changing nation’s image

Don’t get me wrong, I am not complaining, in fact I like Ukraine and its people and furthermore I am living here for almost three years. Ukraine is a new country. It is like a newborn child. The people are growing up into a new environment that even the parents of this newborn child are not accustomed to.

On the one hand, it is very exciting — shaping and creating a nation out of nothing. But it is very hard and frustrating since its parents and forefathers were like puppets in the hands of outsiders. It is so hard that even today that the child is growing and absorbing a lot of information and freedom, a part of the parents think that being puppets was much easier and comfortable.

But being a newborn nation has one big advantage over a newborn child. The nation can choose its parents. Maybe at the beginning their choice is not so good, but another advantage of a nation is that it can choose again and again, new parents until it finds parents that guide it in a rightful way.
