The Ukraine You've Never Seen before 🇺🇦

🇺🇦 There are plenty of videos on IT-plans about Ukraine and they all show the same things; pretty churches in Kyiv, beaches in Odessa or Lviv's incredible town square. But did we really learn about the country from those generic films? I don't believe so. And so I wanted to travel off the beaten track and show you the real places and meet the real people of Ukraine away from the cliches. Oh and we will search for some Soviet mosaics too. Join me on an adventure in what may well be Europe's friendliest and least understood country.

bald and bankrupt
Don't forget to check out my other channel for smaller adventures that usually end in a crushing disappointment. Here: it-plans.info/news/B2GbNXOsy3VBksSD58NvhQ.html

It makes me so proud to be a Ukrainian, watching balds adventures throughout the former ussr and seeing him come back to Ukraine really reminds me of how nostalgic of a feeling it is to be there. I miss visiting the farm my mom grew up and seeing my grandma there, and can’t forget the journey there riding from Lviv to Ivano-Frankisvk. seeing such different environments it’s almost a nostalgic feeling watching balds videos. hearing those songs and those couple of seconds where he showed influential Ukrainian people really just makes me happy. This is truly what the Ukrainian experience is like

I was an American student in the Soviet Union in Moscow in 1984 for two semesters; so this is very very interesting, poking his nose in all the little corners, having all these wonderfully spontaneous experiences. Love it! It’s also doing wonders for my conversational Russian.

I feel like Bald is a video game character finding collectibles but in real life. He's got to find every Soviet mosaic so he can unlock reality's concept art.

Great Job - I’m not here for watching travel blogs as much as getting a great glimpse of the current situation in Ukraine. You did a fantastic job in showing the atmosphere of Courage, Resilience, and pride in the people . The unfortunate foul weather was perfect for really capturing the mood of a scarred reality. Ripped up buildings, contrasted with the Soviet Icons, that seem to endure the Shelling and Destruction. Thanks for making this- Well done 👍

The translation of the folk song that the accordion guy was singing at 9:07 Pine tree (Smereka) Hut is on the edge of village Pine tree looks into its window There's a maiden in that hut But she lives so far away from here. Dear pine tree, could you be so kind to tell me, Why you grow so far away from here? Tell me, please, my charming pine tree. Dear pine tree, could you be so kind to tell me, Why you grow so far away from here? Tell me, please, my charming... Please come to the lake, my lovely, Pretty much I wanna see you You've fascinated my poor heart You've fascinated all my soul Dear pine tree, could you be so kind to tell me, Why you grow so far away from here? Tell me, please, my charming pine tree. Dear pine tree, could you be so kind to tell me, Why you grow so far away from here? Tell me, please, my charming... Spring has come to the Carpathians Migratory birds arrived here But we haven't met our maiden, Still we haven't met our heart's dream...

Why it is everything Soviet there? Don't they build anything on their own after becoming free?

I like that guy on the train 7:30 ish mark but thought that Bald missed a chance when he said we don't need to make war. It's that very word that is part of our undoing. He should consider saying I don't want to make war with anyone, that's the key you can only speak for yourself. Speaking about any war in a group sense is what leads to it. When you die at war you die on your knees. I'd rather say no to war. That old guy is a legend and is probably talking from real-life experience, which we should all take time to reflect on!

Look, I know you're fascinated by soviet history and architecture but enough is enough 😜 seriously dude I LOVE your content but I've had it from ex-ussr cities and towns and buildings and east european and the caucasus countries, I know they feel nostalgic but they're also very depressing to be honest especially when you do several of them in a row 😬 hoping to see you somewhere more interesting and cheerful the next time!
