The American proved in court that borscht is a Ukrainian dish: why did he need it
A New Yorker proved in court that borscht is a Ukrainian, not a Russian dish. The store owners were forced to remove false information from the window.
37-year-old Killian Dero Hoffman from New York saw in a supermarket in the United States, which was owned by a Russian, the inscription: “Borsch is a Russian dish,” says in an exclusive article Express. This inscription angered a man who was a fan of Ukraine so much that he sued the store. And won!
Killian speaks Ukrainian in a way that can wipe his nose with many Ukrainians. He is Belgian American. He works as a programmer, legal assistant, owns a virtual mobile provider.
“My great-grandmother was Ukrainian, and my great-grandfather was German,” the American told Express. - He served as an SS soldier, but later went over to the side of the Ukrainian rebels, because he hated the Nazis and Bolsheviks. During World War II, in order to save the life of his wife and daughter Alevtina, the grandfather sent them to Ukraine, to the Kharkov region, to the small village of Sudikha.
Great-grandfather brought Ukrainian soldiers out of the shelling of a road that only Germans knew. He was later shot for this. In memory of my family, I decided to learn the Ukrainian language.
I came to the New York Public Library, known as one of the best book depositories in the world, borrowed special literature there, Ukrainian dictionaries and read a little. The first phrases that I mastered: "Shiro dyakuyu!" (“Thank you very much!” / ”Sincerely thank you!”) And “We kindly ask you to go to Ukraine!” ("Welcome to the Ukraine!"). The participle and adverbial phrases were difficult. But the cases are easy. I practice the language with a close friend living in Kiev. He helps me to pronounce Ukrainian words correctly, teaches me grammar and dialects.
In general, I managed to master Ukrainian in about a year. Now I communicate at the carrier level. I like to read books about the history of Ukraine. Recently I was advised to "Aeneid" by Ivan Kotlyarevsky, I plan to read it.
The story of borsch
In the supermarket, I saw an inscription that borscht is a Russian dish. Terribly angry! Therefore, he filed a court action for deliberately misleading consumers. I used information confirmed by the International ISBN Agency, which indicates that borscht is a dish of Ukrainian origin.
This agency is highly respected all over the world, so the judge had no reason to doubt. As a result, just recently, the court ruled in my favor. Borsch is a Ukrainian dish! And the store owners were forced to remove false information from the window.
I dream of getting to Ukraine again. In 2010 I visited every area, it was a good experience. I hope to repeat it! ”
