This is a unique p in a big city though I don’t understand why it is called a village. The first Ukrainians began to colonize it at the end of the 19th century. Though it borders the most dangerous district of the US they were not afraid to live here and develop the territory. Both Russian and Ukrainian are spoken here though Ukrainian prevails. That’s a nice place to visit and to live. The old and new meet here.
