Days of Ukraine in London. Post-Event Blog

Blog by Andy Hunder Ukrainians are generally a miserable bunch, according to the latest research presented in London on Thursday, which verifies previous studies showing that Ukraine is the unhappiest nation in Europe. National pride is also at an all time low. People don’t feel a sense of self-esteem of belonging to the country and are often quick off the mark to put their own country down. Many are migrating, with no plans to come back anytime soon. And, as depicted in my previous blog, the perception of Ukraine in the UK, and across the world, is far from great. Being >>>
