This is a post for my friend Admiral July, an angry Ukrainian feminist who really loves puppies. ^-^ She ordered me to take a photo of a Finnish dog in the snow, which I failed to do so far (mostly because I'm an asocial creature who likes to stay home when it's too slippery outside). But! I did find something Ukrainian in Helsinki, in a grocery shop...
(Oops, I should have used a puppy instead...)
This borscht was made in Lithuania. :D Also I saw many Russian-style products in Finnish shops... that were made in Germany.
I added potatoes, beans, parsley and chilli. Noms!
Bonus video about Lviv, the city where Admiral July prowls the streets searching for the puppies to cuddle.*
