Let's keep the 'no soup for you' references to a minimum.
"Borscht" is a traditional beetroot and cabbage soup and could soon be officially recognised as a Ukrainian cultural heritage.
The country has nominated the popular dish for UNESCO's Intangible Cultural Heritage list.
Last year chef Levgen Klopotenko tried to convince authorities to put Borscht forward for nomination. But this caused controversy as in many places its name is synonymous with Russian soup.
Klopotenko disagrees, “A lot of things were taken away from Ukraine, but they will not take our Borscht”.
