What is Ukraine beside the news from Donbas warzone? It is for example a story of young man Zhorik who comes to the capital for better life. Luxury city and newly proclaimed European values seem very tempting for him. However there he needs to fight Soviet-inherited bureaucracy, break the routine of ridiculous low-skilled jobs and climb the barriers separating people like him from city’s “upper class”. Finally, a small person in a big city is a story about many of us.
