I love Ukraine!

Speak love in Ukrainian
3 Dec 2014 | From Lidiya of Ukraine

Ukrainian language is the official language of Ukraine. It is one of the East Slavic languages like Russian and Belorussian. These languages use the Cyrillic alphabeth. Ukrainian language is currently emerging from a long period of decline. But it is mostly prevalent in Western Ukraine (where it undergone some Polish influence).

I love you in Ukrainian can be translated as 'Ya tebe kohayu!' or 'Ya tebe lyublyu!' which are more informal, and then 'Ya vas kohayu!' or 'Ya vas lyublyu!' which are formal or can be more romantic. Ukrainians are said to be passionate and affectionate people. Whether it is greeting a friend or parting with a kiss, walking arm in arm, being in a conversation - Ukrainians always find a way to be more deeply affectionate.

They connect to many pleasant things — parents, our friends; beautiful nature, gentle flowers, the trees in the yard, the native language and music, and the like.

  1. If to say only 'love you' instead of 'I love you', then how Ukrainian pronounce it. Thank you.
