"Country profile: Ukraine

Facts and statistics on Ukraine including history, population, politics, 
geography, economy, religion and climate


Living national icons: Eugene Hutz (singer and actor), Milla Jovovich 
(model and actor), Andriy Shevchenko (football), Artur Ayvazian (rifle 
shooting), Vitali Klitschko (boxer)


I guess that we'll soon be singing "Start Wearing Purple" (Hutz); 
looking for the Fifth Element - "Me fifth element - supreme being. Me 
protect you." (Jovovich); and wondering how to have Silvio Berlusconi for 
a Godfather (Shevchenko).

As for the rifleman and the boxer, add your own quips.

You'd think that the braided lady/hazova prytsesa and the beekeeper would 
make it as cultural icons.

In the words of Volodymyr Palahniuk (Jack Palance), "... believe it,
... or not."
