    Discovering Ukrainian Culture is a new series of episodes of the Explaining Ukraine podcast. In our first episode, we discuss Hryhoriy Skovoroda, the founding father of Ukrainian philosophy. Skovoroda lived in the 18th century, but his lifestyle and teachings are just as vital now as they were in his day; his idea of personalized nature helps us find meaning in today’s world. – Hosts: Volodymyr Yermolenko, Ukrainian philosopher and journalist, chief editor of UkraineWorld.org, and Tetyana Ogarkova, Ukrainian scholar and journalist, head of the international department at the Ukraine Crisis Media Centre.

    Ukraine renews railway connection with de-occupied Kherson - Weekly, 13-20 Nov, 2022 | Ep. 162

    One week after Ukraine liberated Kherson, it renewed the train connection with the city. Ukraine’s president Zelensky visited Kherson only a few days after the Russians fled the biggest city they had occupied since February 24th. Ukrainians are renewing electricity supply across the country, though its infrastructure was heavily damaged by the Russian strikes. Russian propaganda says the West is afraid of Russia, although the reality is that Russian defeats in Ukraine provoke increasing disappointment inside Russia.

    Odesa in search of security and identity | Ep. 161

    Odesa, a city on the Black Sea. One of the most beautiful Ukrainian cities. Always in danger of Russian strikes from the sea. And a key place for global food security, as Odesa ports export majority of Ukrainian food when other ports are occupied by Russia. We visited Odesa some time ago to understand how this city is living.
