You're reading: Why I feel good about Ukraine now, from afar

So, my last impression in Ukraine was a jump of the rate, to Hr 8 to the dollar. The one before that was a military parade on Khreshchatyk, when the nation’s troopers and all the metal scrap that was still capable of moving attempted to show Russia that it could not do to us what it did to Georgia earlier that same year. 

The final decision to stay in the U.S. came on the third week of my living in Los Angeles. We had work to do here, and despite one of the projects spiraling out of control, another one, colorization of the movie Only Old Men Are Going to Battle, was going really well.

I came to Ukraine eight times in the first year, and four times to Moscow. In the second year, the number of visits was roughly the same because I took part in the filming of Land of Oblivion with Olga Kurylenko in Chornobyl.
