  1. Hello,
    I am a girl from Holland who loves Ukraine. I have lived there for 6 months two years ago. I would like to get in contact with you to ask you some questions. Is that possible? I don’t know if you get my emailadress when I fill it in on the bottom of this page? Otherwise I will send it to you in a next comment.
    Thanks already!
    Marije
