Positive
1. Economy grew by 8% January-April
2. We are building skyscrapers
3. Period of saving ukrainian language from extinction has ended, now it will soon enter its golden age. If we consider Irish experience, our policy of saving the language has been more than successful.
4. We are in peace with all our neighbors, with most our relations are better than ever before in history
5. Euro-2012 is ours :banana:

Negative
1. Our politicians are perhaps the most irresponsible in Europe
2. We are facing a rapid population decrease due to low birthrate, few families want to have 2 children.
3. Due to severe economic crisis that lasted nearly a decade, we are still behind even most other EE countries in terms of gdp per capita.
4. We are facing a potential isolation, being stuck outside EU and with hostile neighbour to the east.
5. Dependence on import of oil and gas makes us prone to submission to blackmail.

heh...that's ambiguous...it's good considernig with having great time with friends (alhohol etc...:) ), but very bad considering with communication with other people and their behaviour:eek:hno: catasthrophy!
Its good in many ways.. Lets say... sports.. I see you are very proud of croatian sport.. without that mentality we would suck.. because we have very bad sport infrastructure and not too much money, and after all we are small country so all we got is talent and mentality

or tourism.. mentality is very important


Of course it has many --es but I think that balkan mentality is not our -, and I dont see Croatia as a typical Balkan contry.

The Good:

1) smart people
2) rich, ancient and globally influential history
3) rich culture that used to be internationally influential before the 14th century
4) booming economy
5) booming ass that wears short skirts and high heels

The bad:

1) smart people who steal the nation's money
2) smart people who pull the strings behind the curtains, while idiot politicians smile in front of the camera
3) smart people who no longer live in Bulgaria
4) smart, selfish yet short-sighted people who feel that having/raising kids is too much of a hassle and a barrier to a good quality of life where recreational sex, beer and chalga are the only worthwhile things between 16 and 40. (I agree with the sex part, not so much the beer, and definitely not the chalga... Our population is free-falling at terminal velocity and the girls need to start popping'em out!)
5) dumb people who like pulling triggers, driving Italian sports cars and showing off their fake-blond chalga bitches who think they're dating the superstars of the underworld. No no, those superstars are the people from points 1 and 2 above in the very same "Bad" category, except we don't really know who they are. Call them the invisibles...

Negative
1) For sure worst politicians in Europe, and may be noting will change in few more years.
2) Soviet type of brain which too many people still have. Nostalgia about soviet times and way of living. This is the worst thing I don't like in Ukrainian people.
