Visceral

There is a substantial Ukrainian community in NYC. Over the years I have gotten to know quite a few first and second generation Ukrainian Americans.

They are a diverse group, with very different opinions on many topics. There is literally only one thing about which they invariably agree.

Their one point of universal agreement? They all hate Russia. Not the Russian people, but the government.

The hatred is passionate and visceral, and I have been told that it goes back for generations. From what I know, I can’t imagine the people from this culture ever acquiescing to this particular invasion.
