We live in a world of stereotypes, conventions and assumptions with varying degrees of accuracy. Ukraine? Yeah, an old world land with lots of older ladies carrying potato sacks, right?

Well, not so fast there, Rand McNally.

This report from KickTV knocks down the stereotypes the way Leo Messi knocks down helpless defenses. According to this report, delivered stylishly by a native of the Eastern European land, these are the important things to know about Ukraine:

  • It’s big. And beautiful.
  • Ukrainians enjoyed their drink.
  • Lots of famous people have Ukrainian roots. (Mila Kunis, yo!)
  • Ukraine has lots of beautiful women. (We mentioned Mila Kunis, right?)
  • Ukrainian’s aren’t Russians. (Not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
