    Since there are some more Ukrainians here now, it's time to ask this. I'll write my answer as soon as the first person has responded, I do not want to risk writing a pathos-laden response and then be the only one to post. I'm curious to see your opinions.

    I was speculating that at least Kanadets or Mavka would answer :-
    Okay, besides them and me there are no active Ukrainian users here ;D

    All true, although Vikings didn't play any significant role. I don't know why the theory of Viking involvement in forming Rus is so popular among some historians.

    For me personally? Being Ukrainian is something I wish our nobility had more respect for in older times for our Eastern brethren.
    I really wish our history had turned out differently.

    Knowing that I am descendent of the Kyivan Rus is great, knowing that my ancestors have their part in the history of Europe as one of the most powerful states is part of it.

    Sadly, changing history is impossible. However, I am sure the future will bring some serious improvements for both of us :)

    To me knowing that I am a descendant of the Scythians, Kyivan Rus and the Cossacks motivates me to live up to my heritage. Whenever I feel stagnant or lazy, I remind myself of what I am and who my ancestors were.

    Yeah, history cannot be changed, only learned from. The greatest problems are fundamentally insolvable, they can only be outgrown.

    Ha! Imperialism detected! Ukraine between the Poles and the Russians looks mush like Poland between Nemtsami and Russkimi (Rosijanamy). ::) ;D

    To me being a Ukranian is in the words of American teenagers, "Beasting 24/7"

    In American slang, beasting means doing excedingly well at something, or being very impressive.

    People in Bulgaria say – "Macedonia is the most romantic part of Bulgarian history"…well…for me "Ukraine is the most romantic part of my family history" :) I don't know why (I've never been to Ukraine, we've never really talked about Ukraine in my family, I don't speak more than a few words in Ukrainian etc.) but I hold really dear this 25% of my blood that are Ukrainian! ;D My image of the country is probably very idealistic/simplistic – beautiful language, fascinating history, cossacks (btw I have cossacks in my family), great music – but I don't care if I'm being naive -> I just love Ukraine and love being at least partly Ukrainian! 8)
