These are all African university students. Unlike in Russia, where Africans pretend to be Black Americans and do rap and hip hop and all that kind of American black stuff, in Ukraine the movement is to go totally native and integrate, They are becoming more Ukrainian than Ukrainians themselves. Sing, dance and do all that local folk stuff and make everybody happy. This has had tremendous success and now they call these people Afro-Ukrainians. Their desire is to assimilate. And it's well received. Smashes social obstacles like magic. The locals' response is- look, most people ( even our own) don't respect out culture, but these black people do. Let's welcome them.
A brain is a terrible thing to wash!

I find this very interesting!!!! At least Ukrainians are being INCLUSIVE provided you learn their culture and language.
