You are adorable, thanks for the info

Very understandable the difference between you informal and formal because Spanish language has the same. English doesn't. If you use it in Spanish, it doesn't give you any trouble using it in Russian. It is the same

My mother was named Olga. But she had no middle name. She was 100% Ukrainian.. Do they have a middle name?

It's funny how our cultures differentiate, in Australia swearing is a common trait amongst mainly intelligent people. Some reasoning is that it's a great social deterrent, for times you don't want to interact with people but need to be in that vicinity, bust out a few loud swear words and now people actively avoid you, that's one example but there's multitudes more.

They ask the age because you look underage with braces. 18 is age of consent in the U.S.A.. FYI... NOTHING to be insulted over when 1 asks the age? Now if you were over 35, then I might understand? 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣

Question about the hugging, I will meet my Ukrainian woman for the first time here in MY country, and we have been doing very great, by using whatsapp calling and we both are on the same level and the same thoughts and even hugging has been discussed, I wonder what is your opinion about hugging NOT in Ukraine but hugging a Ukrainian woman who is coming for the first time to MY country and it's also the first time we meet. Is it wise? (I am from The Netherlands by the way).

5:38 lol- Kissing and hugging a stranger in the USA. Get you slapped,punched, beat up, or even shot and/or killed. Yeah I know nice country we have here.
UZI9MMAUTO (10 months ago)
America saying You is like saying "hey You: to a stranger. To get quick quick attention. An aggressive version is Yo! But depends on the tone used. It it be used only among friends or to get a stranger attention.(Tone of voice is important or it can be rude or aggressive)

Just another question, do you shake hands with opposite gender? As I know majority are orthodox Christian which has similiarities in looks with Islam or Judaism... I am not sure if shake hand is possible to do..
Olga Reznikova (10 months ago)
Mostly time we are not shaking hands, but in business it's possible.

NECHO II (11 months ago)
It's the same in English / American society. Don't call people, especially girls by their last name. unless you do it like this, Hello, Miss or Ms. or Mrs. Reznikova. We also do not hug people who we have just met. People who swear frequently or even at all is STRONGLY DISAPPROVED in most English / American society. As you said, people who swear a lot ; it shows their lack of intelligence. It is also considered very rude to ask someone how old they are if you do not know them well. But I noticed in Iran, Iranian girls immediately wanted to know how old I was even though I am a man.
John Steed (11 months ago)
Using "bad words", swearing, is treated similarly in the United States. It is a sign of low breeding, low intelligence, and immaturity. It may be becoming more popular, but, that does not take anything away from what I said previously.

http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sciencetech/article-3949986/Is-swearing-sign-intelligence-People-curse-larger-vocabulary-don-t.html I still don't think I would swear in your country since it is considered improper... and there is never a good reason to appear rude or boorish. However not staying informed about something and judging the intelligence of others for any reason is kind of lame regardless of if they say things you don't like. ;-)
How old are you😂😂

Violetta Terpetska (1 year ago)
I'm Ukrainian and I have to disagree with some Olga's points. It is not "crazy impolite" to call person by their last name. It just requires appropriate situation. Obviously you won't call your friend by surname, because it's odd. I'm not sure if any country in the world does that. Sometimes people from other countries just don't know which one is your first name: Olga or Resnikova. I highly doubt they want to show their disrespect to you. So, you shouldn't take it that way. Also, I don't consider asking someone's age rude. Pretty outdated rule. If the girl/woman is insecure about herself, then any question might offend her. How are men suppose to know if you are underage? No one wants to go to jail for being polite;) And lastly, you are generalizing too much while talking about hugging and kissing. It's varies a lot from person to person, from family to family and different parts of our country. If you're comfortable with a person- go ahead and give him/her a big hug, even if you meet each other for the first time. I don't think anyone in Ukraine will get offended by someone giving them a hug or a friendly kiss on a cheek. Unless those people are judging, close minded and take everything personally, as if someone constantly tries to assault them. But that's their problem, right? We just have to be opened to other cultures and embrace diversity, in order to stop this attitude: "don't do this, don't do that..." Take it easy, people ;)

Do you really think a person would be offended if a foreigner mistakenly uses the informal version of "you"? I mean usually I try to be very accepting when someone is struggling to speak my language, because I understand how challenging it is.

Hey Olya how are you? OOops I mean Dobre Noche Olya! Ti Harne Divchita! I am a Black American from NYC. I lived in Ukraine for three months exactly one year ago today. I met a woman while I was there and lived with her as a couple. Watching your video I see lot of mistakes I made. Once she introduced me to her childhood friend and I went to hug and give her a polite kiss on the cheek and she freaked out lol. It was hilarious. You should talk about how it is rude to whistle in places of business. I got into trouble a lot because of this, my ex-girlfriend would scowl me constantly. One taxi driver told my Ex-girlfriend in Ukranian that there would be 'racism' (violence) if I whistled again while in his car. If you ever want to Skype interview a foreigner who has lived in Ukraine and/or someone who had a relationship with a Ukrainian woman I'd be glad to give my thoughts. SLAVA UKRAINE!!
Rıdvan Matuk (3 months ago)
I have been living in Ukraine for 7 months. I want to say something. Actually, that's what I want to say. You know. If you are acquainted with a foreign person and the person you meet is a friend of your friend, whats wrong with that? ı experienced do the same problem. when ı meet my teacher I was hug and little kiss her for polite. and she looks me for find stranger. you now ı mean this is so different our countires. but ı have to give right she ask me why you are hug and kiss me by the way when ı hug her she hug better than me xd ı said this is so normal in our country if ı make a mistake ı want to say sorry. And she say bla bla bla it is necessary to respect the cultures of the countries. I did not feel uncomfortable with it.

Ivan Krivyakov (1 year ago)
You have to give them some slack: all Slavic languages sound the same to Americans. We have many Polish people in my area, so when I speak Russian, people routinely ask me if it's Polish. Worse yet, when there was some kind of Polish Americans parade and I happened to walk nearby, some people would nonchalantly approach me and start speaking Polish, and would almost get offended when I replied that I don't speak Polish.
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
WhenI am abroad, I try speak only English on the streets, because when I speak Ukrainian, everyone comes to me and ask if I am form Russia. I don't want somebody think that I am from Russia))) And of course I will never say that I am from that country))

Jay MyLotto (1 year ago)
Most of your points are just about common sense. However, there is one thing that bothers me incredibly. And I say this based on experience as well: Russians and Ukrainians seem to be ao incredibly RIGID and set in their ways when it comes to these things. example: you say A= you must be rude. you say B = you must be dumb because "intelligent people don't talk that way". In the West, there unconventional, non-conformist people that don't always behave according to these little rules. Some of the most intelligent people I've met are free with the language that they use. Ukrainians and Russians, especially the women, seem to have a million rigid little rules that they judge people by. They seem to have no room for non-conformism and they are very very focused on the outer form and not so much on the inner meaning. I would be curious to hear your response.
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
hehe, maybe you are right! We heard about all of those rules at school since childhood all the time, so maybe this is why everyone pay attention on it and it embarrassed them so much)

Dott. Andrea La Torre (1 year ago)
Your videos are very nice and I agree with everything but to come from a different culture and to make mistakes just because you don't know still good the different culture of the place doesn't mean not to be intelligent.. I have been in 126 different countries of the world until now and even if this opened a lot my mind, it is almost impossible no to make mistakes... Intelligence in the literal meaning meaning means ability to understand.. And intelligence must be even understand that in the end if someone use rude words.. call you by surname.. use Tи.. blow the nose in public and so on.. (not with the purpose to offend you) he or she is not doing nothing that can hurt or change the life of nobody.. To blame people for being different (and right for their culture).. is the non intelligent thing.. This at least is my opinion. Of course not directed to you or your nice words.. but generally speaking... 😉

100% true! And about rich language: the thing is people sometimes will reprimand you about swearing in a pub, when you're speaking in English with your buddy! The thing is according to all the studies, recent it was published by researchers at Marist College in New York, intelligent people swear more. So it's sometimes hard to express in Ukraine:(
