Ukrainian Catholic University students podcast "Ukrainians: Identity in Dignity"

What makes Ukrainians so strong as they are? What hones their dignity? That is some of the questions Ukrainian Catholic University students try to answer in their new podcast.
In "Ukrainians: Identity in Dignity", their team recites to the world the pages of their history that define the national identity and dignity of Ukrainians.
Now the whole world has riveted attention to the war in their country. But without the understanding of Ukrainians, their national identity, it is difficult for foreigners to comprehend the Ukrainian nation and requests sufficiently, limiting the possibilities of our cooperation. The UCU students have launched the "Ukrainians: Identity in Dignity" podcast to change this.
Podcast platforms can be found HERE
