You're reading: Vox Populi with Maryna Irkliyenko: What impresses you most about Ukraine, apart from football?

“I like Kyiv very much. I am from a small city [in Sweden], so it’s quite big for me. After the game Sweden against Ukraine, all the people on the streets [were] so happy and cheering. I am [most] impressed with the people.”

“The Swedish fans [impressed me most]. [They are] happy and friendly. In Ukraine everybody is very helpful. We went on a bus tour and everybody was very friendly.”      

“I believe I came with a lot more prejudice. I thought it was a lot less modern. So I am really impressed with the city and how modern it actually is and also how friendly the people are. We get picked up by strangers who want to talk to us. I don’t understand a single word they say but I can understand that they are friendly at least. That impresses me a lot.”
