Two document Ukraine and Russia

Stuart McBratney

SINCE leaving her Ukrainian homeland 14 years ago, Julia Nalivaiko is often asked, "What’s it like?".

To answer the curious masses, she’s returned to Ukraine and Russia with Australian filmmaker Stuart McBratney to document the people, culture and food.

They’re currently halfway through their eight-week shoot, and are posting video stills from the road.
