Glory to Kotygoroshkos!

Updated: Mar 20, 2022

We also grew up on different fairy tales. 

Just compare:

A typical Ukrainian fairy tale hero is Kotyhoroshko. The surname ends in a traditional Ukrainian “- ko”. 

Yeah, a typical Ukrainian.

– Give me a mace! 

*bends it*

– Give me another one! 

*breaks it*

– Give the third one… well, OK. But also NLAW, Javelin and a couple of planes will do. 

– So what now, Kotyhoroshko, will we fight or put up with it?

– Fight!

*whack! whack! whack!*

What I am trying to say…

Glory to Kotygoroshkos! Death to Ivans the Fools!
