Ukraine: The Land of Beauty
Winter of 2014 brought many changes as to the international system as to the internal system of Ukraine. The country that was known for its separateness from European states and allegiance with Russia, comes back to its roots, comes back to Europe. People of Ukraine fought for their freedom, liberty and choice.
With the newly elected president of Ukraine, Petro Poroshenko, the country signed Association Agreement. It has not only political or economical meaning, but that is a symbolic event, a promise to pursue European dream.
