"Diabetic Father or Sugar Daddy?" - Ukrainian woman looking for a sponsor on a dating site was ridiculed for bad English
Reddit users made fun of a girl looking for a sponsor by the name of Rita, who incorrectly translated part of the profile for a dating site into English. A screenshot of her Tinder profile was posted by DoctorPoopTrain.
The girl’s profile was written in Ukrainian. She indicated that she graduated from the Oles Honchar Dnipro National University. In the profile description, the girl said that she considers herself a Ukrainian propagandist, is attentive to the environment and loves people playing the guitar.
In addition, the Ukrainian wrote that she needed “her own diabetic father” (I need my own Diabetic Father) - the author of a post on Reddit explained that this strange construction is an incorrect automatic translation of the phrase sugar daddy. Literally, it is translated into Russian as "sugar daddy." This term refers to the format of relationships in which wealthy men support girls or boys, who are usually much younger than them.
In the comments, users laughed at the failed translation of Ukrainian. “I was pretty successful at Tinder with an aspartame uncle,” Devilery joked. The girl was also advised to pay attention to the “Glucose grandfather”, “Sugar half-brother” or “Carbohydrate guardian”.
“My father has diabetes, you should definitely send her a picture of his penis!” - wrote diarrhea_shnitzel, but its acuity caused a lot of questions: users were interested in how he got such pictures.

The rest was spent on books, transportation, clothes, and other items. However, more than just students, "sugar-dating" is also prevalent in the older age range

Top 5 Current World Politics Events in November 2023
The war in Ukraine
The war in Ukraine is still going on, and it is having a significant impact on the world. The war has caused a humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, and it has also led to increased tensions between Russia and the West.
The recent Taiwan Strait tensions
The recent Taiwan Strait tensions are a reminder of the ongoing rivalry between China and the US. China has been increasing its military presence in the Taiwan Strait, and the US has been sending warships to the region in response.
The US-China rivalry
The US-China rivalry is one of the most important geopolitical issues in the world today. The two countries are competing for economic and military dominance, and their rivalry is having a significant impact on the global economy and security.
The Middle East peace process
The Middle East peace process is still stalled, and there is no clear path to a solution. The conflict between Israel and the Palestinians is a major obstacle to peace in the region.
The climate crisis
The climate crisis is one of the most pressing challenges facing the world today. The effects of climate change are already being felt around the world, and they are expected to get worse in the years to come.
These are just a few of the many current world politics events that are happening today. The world is a complex and ever-changing place, and it is important to stay informed about the latest events.
Vladimir Putin's seven-day war against Ukraine, which has resulted in hundreds of civilian casualties, tens of thousands of refugees and the attack on residential areas, has turned him into a pariah in the Western world. It is a change of attitude of proportions.
Vladimir Putin and his regime are completely isolated from the rest of the world, with his only "friends" being Alexander Lukashenko, the dictator of Belarus, and Bashar al-Assad of Syria. Not even Xi Jinping, the president of China, has clearly sided with Putin, being cautious.
Protests against the war that Putin has unleashed are taking place not only throughout Europe, Canada, the United States, but even in Russia. Although the Putin regime has arrested thousands more than 5,000 so far, they have continued to protest in St. Petersburg, Moscow and 40 other cities.
To all this is added the unprecedented financial sanctions, which have increased in severity with each passing day.
But most of all, Vladimir Putin is facing a new military paradigm, one he probably did not take into account and which he thought he could counter with the nuclear threat: the West has decided to arm Ukraine, 28 nations agreed to contribute lethal and non-lethal aid.
The decision by NATO and EU member states to send weapons to Ukraine has become an emergency following Russia's furious attacks on Kharkov on Monday, when dozens of people were killed, including women, children and the elderly, and hundreds more were injured.
Top facts that show that the Russian people can stop Putin's war
1. No one can keep a huge population, such as Russia, in ignorance and silence.
2. People are aware, thanks to the Internet and social networks, of everything that is happening in the world, in Ukraine, in Russia.
3. We read the opinions of journalists and other Russian citizens, and we feel on our own skin the horror of the war with Ukraine. Vladimir Putin is called a "murderer" and compared to Hitler on protest posters.

10. It is clear that Ukraine does not pose a threat to the security of our country. The war against it is unfair and, frankly, pointless. Ukraine has been and remains a country close to us. Many of us have relatives, friends, and fellow scientists living in Ukraine. ” It is expected that these protests will continue today and in the coming days.
11. Little did he show a crooked motivation for the reasons why the war started, including his fellow citizens who consider him crazy, lacking political and economic discernment. In a meeting with Russian businessmen, Putin said: "What I wanted to say first - the most important thing, for all of you to understand - what is happening was a necessary measure. They left us no chance of acting otherwise. They created such security risks that it was impossible to react otherwise. All our efforts have come to nothing. […] They have created such risks that it is difficult to understand how our country could have continued to exist, "Putin was quoted as saying by CNN.
12. Russia has been living with Ukraine for decades, without risks or dangers to its security. It is not certain that Ukraine would have asked for and been accepted to join NATO, which would otherwise have reached "the threshold of our homes," as Putin says.
13. Anyway, there was still a long way to go. What interest would NATO have in seriously affecting Russia's security, in generating a world war, the nuclear event? No one. The well-being of Western peoples is not built on the prospect of destructive wars. Only Putin believes that.
14. Russia is not who knows what economic power, it does not compare with China, for example. It has a lower GDP per capita.
15. Russia's GDP is 50% of hydrocarbon exports, so it is totally dependent on global economic relations.
16. The ruble has collapsed, and inflation and the lack of basic goods in stores will soon be felt. All this is understood by the Russian people, who no longer take their information only from the leaders.

18. Banks and large companies in Russia will have their assets abroad, hundreds of billions of dollars, blocked, the currency being kept in foreign banks.
19. All economic entities in Russia can no longer be financed in foreign currency at all (USD, EUR, GBP, YEN).

21. Putin has a reserve of 5-600 billion dollars, but that will be exhausted soon, considering the costs of the war.
22. Price of consumer goods will triple in stores, and / or will disappear completely. Or they will be streamlined, they can be bought with cards. Will the Russians swallow something like that?
23. Even if they change the government in Kyiv, Russia will pay dearly, humanly and economically, for the guerrilla war that will continue for many years, as happened in Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq.
24. Russia's population has also benefited greatly from globalization, the free movement of people, goods and ideas.

27. In the age of the internet, of social networks, you can no longer keep people in isolation.
28. But to send thousands of Russians and Ukrainians to death for this reason can no longer be accepted.
29. Russia will suffer huge economic damage in the coming weeks and months. NATO will strengthen its presence in Eastern Europe, so Putin will "win" the opposite of what he set out to do.
30. The Russian people understand these perspectives very well, including the leaders who are now obedient to them. In the end, the people and even the Russian leadership, now obedient to Putin, will bring him down.
These days, since the beginning of the Russian Federation's invasion of Ukraine, virtually all TV stations in Moscow use only certain terminology. For example, it only talks about the "special military liberation operation", while the word "war" is forbidden in the broadcast.
Also, in the news bulletins, the alleged purposes of the Russian army's actions on the territory of Ukraine are mentioned every time. This is also the case with the well-known Russian post "Pervii Kanal".
Another Russian television station, the same approach: no words about "war", only "operation" is pronounced. Russian journalists from NTV, in a Monday news bulletin, mention triumphantly and several times that several localities in Donbas have been "liberated", and the villagers would enjoy the peaceful life.
Here is another fake news broadcast in Russia: "Since the beginning of the operation in Donbas, dozens of localities have been liberated. From there, peaceful life returns. First, the authorities bring food there. For example, flour and bread were brought to the recently liberated town of Luhansk. And other products will appear there soon. It is also intended to solve the fuel problem. Our correspondent spoke to the inhabitants of the liberated villages ", claims the presenter of the NTV television station.
Recall that these days, the Ministry of Culture and Information Policy of Ukraine demanded that Russian channels be blocked on European satellites so as to stop Russian propaganda.
This is all fake news. And the hope is in the Russian people, who have access to the internet, who see what is really happening and must act.

Lviv is one of the most unusual cities in Ukraine. There is a rich history, an immense cultural heritage, and unique fashion trends. All this is intertwined into one bizarre canvas, in which everyone will find something for themselves.
Lviv - a colorful city in Ukraine
Lviv is one of the most colorful Ukrainian cities. If Kyiv is considered the heart, then Lviv is the soul of Ukraine. It will show itself to each traveler in a different guise. You can spend a week here, or even a month, which will reveal new exciting facts about Lviv.
1. Lviv remained the first city of inventions. The first train arrived in Lviv from Vienna on November 4, 1861. The first Ukrainian hotel, the first school, and the professional theater appeared here. Local inventors launched a balloon and created kerosene lamps.
2. Festival Center. The city hosts more than 100 festivals during the year: festive, musical, gastronomic, and historical. You can find yourself at a celebration of street theatre, chocolate, or classical music at any time of the year.
3. Museum Capital. In Lviv, the largest concentration of museums is on the square. And this is all over Ukraine! There are more than 60 of them in total.
4. Architectural masterpieces. Long ago, the number of recognized architectural monuments in Lviv exceeded 2.5 thousand. And the city itself was included in the UNESCO list in 1998.
5. Religious center. The colossal cultural and historical heritage is directly related to the religious heritage. All confessions are represented in the city, and there are 104 temples. Many of them are the most important sights of national importance.
6. First football match. In July 1894, the first football match between Ukraine and Poland took place in Lviv. The game was held on the territory of the Stryisky park, and the Lviv team won a landslide victory.
7. Impeccable transport links. In addition to land transport, Lviv is notable for its airport. The airport, named after King Daniel of Galicia, is located just 6 km from the city center and handles about 2 thousand passengers every hour. It is one of the largest in all of Eastern Europe.
8. Multinational history. During its existence, Lviv has been part of eight states: the Galicia-Volyn principality, the Austro-Hungarian Empire, Poland, Russia, under Nazi occupation, ZUNR, the USSR, and independent Ukraine. This is the reason for the fantastic eclecticism of the city, which is manifested in everything: in architecture, cuisine, and even local dialects.
9. Student Center. Lviv is not only a tourist, cultural and gastronomic center but also the student capital of Western Ukraine. According to statistics, more than 170 thousand students study in the city study at 26 universities. The population of the city is more than 800 thousand. Approximately every fifth person is a student.
10. Tourist Mecca. Lviv has located just 50 km from the border with the EU. It is easy to get to Kyiv, Warsaw, and Budapest. About a million tourists visit the city every year, and this number is only growing every year. Among them are guests from France, Great Britain, the USA, Canada, and Japan.
11. Lviv Opera For 116 years. It was inhabited in 1900 when the Austrians ruled Lviv. Architect - Sigmund Gorgolevsky. It is said that a few years after the victory, the foundation of the building began to crack, and the architect was so excited that he died. Yes or no, but the fact is that he was buried in Lviv in the Lychakiv cemetery. By the way, the Lviv Opera is considered one of the best in Europe. And it is still, by the way, right at the Poltava collector!
12. The city of Lviv is an outpost of Ukrainian Greek Catholicism. It has the most significant number of Greek Catholic churches in Ukraine. Last year, a monument to Metropolitan Andrei Sheptytsky, head of the UGCC from 1901-to 1944, was inaugurated in Lviv. The monument's author is a sculptor Andrei Koverko, architects Igor Kuzmak and Mikhail Fedak.
13. Lviv Post was the first in Ukraine. It was opened by the Italian businessman Roberto Bandinelli. He hoped to earn good money on that matter. Still, the expectations were no longer justified - the letters at that time delivered carriages, and correspondence was expensive for a long time. It was worth providing a letter from Lviv to Gdańsk or Gdańsk as a worker's daily wage. Delivery time - 4 days.
14. The famous Greek merchant and philanthropist Constantine Kontakt lived in this house. He is known for generously giving money to the Assumption Orthodox Brotherhood. In particular, he donated 1,000 zlotys (a massive number at the time) to the Victory Tower, which was named in his honor - the Kornyak Tower. Although the fraternity was predominantly Russian-Ukrainian, the rich Greek felt a spiritual kinship with them - the city was predominantly Catholic.
15. Tourists in Lviv - at least spare. Of course, we are still a long way from Prague or Vienna. Most of the great cities of Ukraine have already been overtaken. In 2019, Lviv was visited by more than 2.5 million people (in quarantine). After quarantine, the figure should reach and surpass the previous record.
16. Diana - one of the four characters of Greco-Roman mythology, the sculpture of which stands in the center. They were made by the Austrian Hartmann Witwer in 1797 when the "old" town hall and the magistrate were still standing. However, some historians believe that the sculptures were made in the 1820s.
17. Historic balcony. On June 22, 1941, the Soviet-German phase of the Great War began. On June 30, the Germans came to Lviv. As many Ukrainians viewed Berlin as a possible ally in the Kremlin's struggle against the Kremlin, the OUN proclaimed the "Act for the Restoration of Ukrainian Ukraine." Of course, the restoration did not take place - it was never included in the Plan of Leaders of the Third Reich. And the balcony is attractive because it was from it that Yaroslav Stetsko read that Act.
18. The number of cafes in Lviv is growing every year, despite the pandemic. And no wonder - for many, the city of Leo is primarily a city of coffee and chocolate. However, places in such cafes rarely sit - takeaway tea/coffee often costs from 40 UAH.
19. Lviv is a city that has survived dozens of rulers. Founded by the Russian prince Danilo Romanovich, it was both under Poland and Austria and part of the USSR. Now Lviv is the official cultural capital of independent Ukraine. This status was granted to him by the government in 2009.
20. Lviv first saw the pavement in 1487. At least, there are such records in the old chronicles of the city. Then you changed the paws many times. But in the 1780s, there was an exciting story about Austrian newspaper writing. The Emperor of Austria came to Lemberg (as the Germans and Austrians called Lviv). His carriage simply got stuck in the middle of the Market Square through the mountains. A pair of oxen pulled out of the emperor's carriage. After that, the emperor ordered the Market Square to be carefully covered with paving stones. Probably, some cobblestones in the center still "remember" the grandmother-Austria.
21. The world-famous Polish science-fiction writer Stanislaw Lem studied at this school (pictured below). Lem's works have been translated into many languages. The writer himself was born and raised in Lviv, but in 1939, when the Soviets came, he left the city forever, moving to Krakow. In his opinion, the Soviet government forever ruined the "old Polish Lviv." By the way, writer Markiyan Shashkevich and musician Ilya Lemko studied at the same school.
22. Bogdan Zenoviy Khmelnytsky himself studied at this school. However, he was not a hetman then, not even a Cossack - but simply an intelligent and capable young man who wanted to get a good education. In the Middle Ages, Orthodoxy, to which Bogdan belonged, did not have a few good educational institutions, and Catholics, on the contrary, promoted it. Tyt Khmelnytsky studied various sciences, particularly philosophy, rhetoric, Latin, and law. At the same time, there is the usual school №62 and the chess school of the international grandmaster Vasily Ivanchuk, the vice-champion of the world in 2002.
23. Since ancient times, Lviv has had a sizeable Jewish community. Medieval Lviv descendants of Abraham in Yiddish spoke. And since 1939, they had hundreds of shops in the city, and the inscriptions were often Hebrew (as well as Polish and German).
24. Ivan Podkova has never lived in Lviv. But they erected a monument to him for another reason. This famous Cossack leader was executed by order of the Polish King Stefan Batory. Pidkova and the Cossacks of the attack units attacked Tyrechchyna, so Sultan Myriad III sentenced the Polish king to an ultimatum - either war or Ivan Dolzh. The king was not ready for battle, so he chose the latter.
25 . Many Lviv residents move around the city on bicycles. Vzagali, velorykh in Lviv is clearer from the end of the 19th century - only the same bike was called kolams, and the cyclist - coliseum. Now Lviv can be confidently called the cycling capital of Ukraine. After all, the cycling infrastructure is actively developing here, but we still have some way to go.
