Sweet! In the Odessa region, which wasn't covered by this project according to the map, the rhythms were more Balkan / oriental and mostly instrumental (melting pot of the world - just like the people living there). That's where the klezmer music originated - and later managed to escape the Holocaust to America/Hollywood:
There was a nice Ukrainian music festival in London last summer. If you like such regional curiosities, I'll let you know if they organise it again.

Putin’s big Ukraine win

The guy behind Zelenskiy:
[...] Ihor Kolomoisky, one of Ukraine’s most powerful oligarchs, whose assets range from banking to media.
He’s also a declared enemy of Poroshenko, who removed Kolomoisky as a regional governor and stripped him of his control of a major bank. The government accused the oligarch of embezzling billions from PrivatBank, which required a rescue that ran into the billions.
Kolomoisky, who has lived in exile in Israel since 2016, fearing prosecution at home, backs Zelenskiy. If his candidate wins, Kolomoisky is widely expected to come back.
Ukraine’s judiciary appears to be already preparing for his return. On Thursday, a court ruled that the government seizure of PrivatBank in 2016 was illegal.
“That means I won,” a triumphant Kolomoisky told Reuters upon hearing of the ruling.
