This project is called Ukraine: People's cut. It's because that's exactly what Ukrainian people do now:
CUT A NEW DIAMOND OUT OF STONE.

This website is a tool of crowd-cutting: we shape the new Ukraine with facts representing these virtues. We started with the facts we find the most important, and now ask you to add your part.

What makes you proud the most, our fellow Ukrainians?
What have amazed you, our foreign friends?

Please share it with us and all those who care about this many-faced, multi-fold, deeply loved country called Ukraine.

The project is supported by Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine, Ministry of Informational Policy of Ukraine, and StratcomUA agency. We've started it, you're very welcome to continue.
