A very powerful essay about the effect of Euro 2012 on Ukraine's national unity....with a great quote by Ostap Drozdov:

‘This is my Ukraine’ should be the words for everyone to say, who wants to die here, no matter where he was born and grew up. One day Tymur will grow up, look at the stadium photos and say:‘This was The Day I became a Ukrainian,’ because it was not Shevchenko who scored the goal, it was Ukraine, our Ukraine.”

Agreed. Ukrainians need to quit thinking in ethnic terms and think of themselves as Ukrainian citizens.
