Правила украинского языка ещё изобретаются, будто и слова, за 100 лет всё не перелопатить же. Главное правило - абы не як у москалей. I бiкiвii i мiжнi зiмiнiть лiбii глiснii.

Can I use Russian to travel in Ukraine ?
Артур Агоев (26 days ago)
+Michel Chen nope, but i can understand about 70% words
Michel Chen (26 days ago)
+Артур Агоев Can you speak Ukrainian ? It seems that Ukrainian is close with Polish.
Артур Агоев (26 days ago)
yep =)
Michel Chen (27 days ago)
+Артур Агоев nice. It is close to Georgia and Krasnodar. So many places to visit in Russia.

Hello Olga, how are you? I inform you that I attend your classes from Ukrainian to English. Check the possibility of making Ukrainian to Brazilian Portuguese or if possible post your videos on youtube.

Is the ukrainian и the Russian ы and the ukrainian i the Russian и?
P Maitra (1 month ago)
Strictly speaking, no. The letter и cannot be substituted for ì. Here is the reason: мирь — peace мìрь — world мир — peace and world in simplified Cyrillic.
NOMAD 83 (9 months ago)
DutchStarboy yes. But и in ukrainian similar to english sound example in word bit. Russian ы is special sound..

So russian E is Ukrainian Э and Russian Э is Ukrainian E
Retro Technology (10 months ago)
Russian Е is "Є" in Ukrainian. The "Э" sound does not exist in Ukrainian
Vadim (1 year ago)
You forgot Russian Э
Vadim (10 months ago)
Soviet Union Technically it's not a letter, and she didn't talk about апостроф/apostrophe (') in Ukrainian, which serves the same purpose as Ъ in Russian.
Soviet Union (10 months ago)
Also "Ъ"
TazManiconTal (1 year ago)
in russian г is also sometimes pronounced with a "v"-sound. Does that happen in Ukrainian as well? just curious. ^^
NOMAD 83 (9 months ago)
Ukrainian easy language to write. Russian hardest..
Retro Technology (10 months ago)
No, it is "h"
Зачем хохлы превратили буковку "и" в звук "ы"? Даже на этом уровне пробуют показать свою незалежность.
NOMAD 83 (9 months ago)
Иван Новиков поэтому что в украинском дудки звука ы. И это среднее меж "ы" и "и"
Ну этак в кириллических алфавитах больше ни у кого дудки буковкы i, там всюду родная "и".
Olga Reznikova (1 year ago)
Иван Новиков а отчего у россиян дудки буковкы і, а фраза о расставлении точек над этой буковкой кушать?
I always use that backwards n vs i to tell whether I am reading Ukrainian, Belarusian, or Russian. If it has backwards n only I assume is Russian, if it only has i then it's Belarusian, and if it has both it's definitely Ukrainian.
Cannibal (1 year ago)
Так отчего дудки? Русская Е из звука Йэ либо Э в неких словах и Буква Э и тот же звук. Украинский напротив попросту
Glaceon Studios (1 year ago)
FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN'T READ CYRILLIC SCRIPT: Tak počemu net? Russkaja E is zvuka Je ili E v nekotorych slovach i Bukva Je i tot že zvuk. Ukrainskij naoborot prosto.
Stefan Reichenberger (1 year ago)
Is Ukrainian "и" the same sound as Russian "ы"? Or is it something else?
Retro Technology (10 months ago)
Stefan Reichenberger Yes there are the same letters.
Vadim (10 months ago)
Peter Charak If you're pronouncing the word "English" as "Ынглышь" then you sound like a weird-o. It's more like "Инглышь"
Peter Charak (1 year ago)
Close. However, in my Ukrainian (western end, near the polish border) "и" is pronounced exactly like the "i" in the English words "bit" or "kit". In Russian, "ы" is more like the "e" in English.

Sebastian Bichescu Yes. In Ukrainian, you combine "sh" and "ch" sounds. In Russian, you hard the "sh" sound.

In Kyiv, is Russian more spoken than Ukrainian or is it half & half? A guy I know from that area speaks Russian, reads and writes it too. Is that common?

many people in Ukraine spaks in russian, but it doesn't mean that they can't speak, read and write in ukranian

You do such a great service. Many from any places are stuck on stereotype and rumor of what they here of different places. I believed there is a better world for us all if we can just be accepting, patient and work together being we all want the same good things and good life. A little communication and an open willingness to try goes a long way with your videos. Straight forward, good intentions and open. Awesome. Thank You Again!   Chris Kennedy

mmm... I would like to know more differences between Ukraine and Russia.. The video you did "Difference about Ukrainian and Russian girls" was great and had many views about 30K, (I don't know why but now the title is in Spanish) But it would be great a video about differences in personality, character, nature about Ukrainian and Russian people, how they spend their holidays, or their hobbies..
amaromem1 (2 years ago)
hahaha I didn't know it.. it's a very interesting and useful function, when I read "Diferencia entre las niñas de Ucrania y Rusia" it was funny hehe

+amaromem1 title is in Spanish, because I shoose this function of YouTube.. It translate title into your language in settings (it's fun, huh?)))) Differences.....yes, I must make this))

David Nyman Ukrainian is not so beautiful, with all the Г, И, and Е everywhere. Ґ, І, and Є are much nicer sounds (Г, И, and Е in Russian)

Czeekaj (2 months ago)
@ Jerry Kalyn Is a shame, szkoda. They are close should act closer. Anglisizing of a langauge would be unfortunate. English is already a hodge podg of loan words.
TristeCarl (2 years ago)
Most of Ukrainians speak Russian. I was born in Kiev, something like 80% of it's population speaks Russian, 10% mix two languages and the other 10 speak Ukrainian. Actually, the Centre of Ukraine mostly speaks Russian, the East - 50/50, and the West - mostly Ukrainian. But, like... 99% of Ukrainians know Russian, some are just not ok with speaking it, dunno why
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
No, it's fun;-)
+Olga Reznikova Не утомились на одни и те же вопросы отвечать?)
Jerry Kalyn (2 years ago)
With the war in the Donetsk and Luhansk, many people in Kyiv and other cities are now refusing to speak Russian anymore. It has become a matter of national pride. There is a country wide shift away from Russian. Young kids in schools are learning Ukrainian and English so over time Russian language use will dramatically decrease.
Wizz Bang (2 years ago)
I like your lesson videos the best. Is the Ukrainian "ь" soft sound the same as the Russian "bl"?
Olga Reznikova (2 years ago)
no, Ukrainian soft sign "ь" is the same as Russian soft sign "ь". At the same time Russian sound "ы" is Ukrainian "и".

Isn't Ukrainian language is just a product of mixing between Russian and Polish language with more Russian influence?
Czeekaj (1 month ago)
not just accent different vocabulary too. Some words change entirely hottovvy and gotowy.
P Maitra (1 month ago)
Interesting conversation here. No offense to anyone. Frankly, it looks like Ukrainian is a dialect of Russian being given the status of a language for political reasons. I don't see why Nikolaev should be changed to Mikolayiv or Kiev to Kyiv or Lvov to Lviv. The only difference appears to be that of a regional accent.
Czeekaj (2 months ago)
I am learning Polski and it is not close, there is shared vocabulary but there is a huge difference in sound. A native speaker will pick up the differences instantly. I've listened to some Belarussian music, Polish, and Russian. Having Ukrainian family I have deffinitly heard Ukraine music.
Alexander Markov (2 years ago)
Ukrainian was formed as a result of disintegration Old Russian approximately in the 15th century. Ukrainian is a part of East Slavic group of languages.
TristeCarl (2 years ago)
Yes, indeed. Ukrainian is more similar to Slovak and Czech, while Belarussian is closer to Polish.

useful video. You would be a smart teacher i think :)))
Jörmungandr (2 years ago)
+da ba I meant they sound similar, because both sounds are made in back of the mouth, and they are both aspirated. Also, I don't get why you are so offended, just because I said it sounds SIMILAR to 'h'. Similar does not mean the same.
da ba (2 years ago)
Дмитрий Яарославцев In Arabic there is kh for the \x\ sound and there is h with h like in hello! Wikipedia in dutch saying to this arabic letters: Don't compare kh and h! they are look a like sime but different letters! so u say a bull shit!
Jörmungandr (2 years ago)
+da ba I know, but it sounds a bit similar to the English h. At least to me it does.
da ba (2 years ago)
kh is romanization most of the time!
Jörmungandr (2 years ago)
+da ba The closest letter to H in Russian cyrillic would be х in my opinion.

Hi Olga, Very good explanation of the differences between the two alphabets. I periodicly look for Ukrainian books in used book stores, now I can easily distinguish between Ukrainian or Russian titles ( can't read well, but I like to collect book for future reading).. PS I'm particularly fond of your complimentary closing in this video, my fav! bw&gby, b
