Surprised so few people knew the surnames of presidents and the national currency of Ukraine. I bet that media in the western countries did not touch the ukrainian issue before the russian suspicious operations in Donbas.

That currency is unknown here in Belgium. I have heard of Yushchenko and Yanukovich but wouldn't have been able to remember them nor to write their names correctly... the only politician that I knew was Tymoshenko.

Actually here in the UK, that particular revolution was televised, so I got the politicians names though I do feel a little ashamed to admit I have never heard of the currency before.

2004 was 10 years ago. Half the US population would be hard pressed to remember our own candidates for president in 2004. :-(

The media in the US is very selective about what is reported. Unless there is something in the news that furthers their liberal agenda, it goes unreported.

In Poland our media is very selective too but since the start of protests in Ukraine in the end of 2013 every Pole had opportunity to learn all about this country - its currency and its exchange rate, all the ukrainian civil battalions just like Azov or Donbas, their political parties and much more. We all are already sick of this, however now when the russian imperialism is dangerous again, the polish politicians can divert attention from their own corrupt swindles and use somehow nationalist rhetoric.

Liberal bias

The leading news channel in the US is Faux News.

@ctleng. So all media outlets are acting in concert to further a liberal agenda, which is why they don't report on Ukraine? How about a simpler explanation. Americans would rather watch news about leaked celebrity news than about a country they are dimly aware of halfway around the world. "Never ascribe to malice that which can be adequately explained by stupidity."

Map is wrong because Crimea is not part of Ukraine anymore - its fact - no matter if its wrong or right.

Probably true, at least for the time being, though I'm taking a wait-and-see approach before I update my oldest cities quiz, which is now inaccurate for the same reason.

Please accept a few more spellings for borscht... the wikipedia page mentions : borsch, bortsch, borstch, borsh and borshch.

All of those except for 1 would have worked.

I tried Bortsch, the only spelling that I know and since it was refused, thought it was something else ^^.

How about you accept "hunger" for "famine"? You die of hunger and a shortage of food when people start dying of hunger is famine.
