Ukraine's Cultural Diplomacy это про Бандеру и запрет русского языка? LOL Ну попросите афроамериканцев написать что-нибудь о культурной дипломатии Конфедерации:)
Admissibility of suggested articles
Hi, I created ru:Украинский культурный фонд, from the list of suggested articles but it was considered not significant enough for the Russian Wikipedia and deleted soon after. I'm confident that it will be restored (discussion here), however it's assumed in the rules of this "contest" that suggested articles are admissible, but it may not be the case depending on the criteria of each Wikipedia edition. It may be worth mentioning somewhere? A455bcd9 (talk) 12:29, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
Donbass in German
Здравствуйте. Где можно найти список созданных статей по авторам, чтобы потом там записаться в качестве участников Месяца культурной дипломатии Украины? Timur Rossolov (talk) 17:28, 25 February 2021 (UTC)
Range of "suggested articles"
As I've never been travelling in Ukraine, much of what I happened to perceive as Ukrainian cultural heritage was determined by what had found entrance into the more general European cultural heritage. Those subjects and those works of art/literature/music are major "ambassadors" of Ukrainian heritage. I believe there will be many Central/Western Europeans who share this kind of perception. Accordingly, I'm quite sure that articles on topics such as the following should also be included in the list.
- w:de:2. Sinfonie (Tschaikowski) and corresponding articles in other languages: The symphony's nickname may or may not be popular today but it does refer to Ukraine (or part thereof) and it is believed to quote several Ukrainian folksongs.
- Many articles about Mazeppa and his representation in the arts:
- w:de:Mazeppa, der Volksheld der Ukraine (a 1919 movie),
- w:de:Mazeppa (Lord Byron),
- w:de:Mazeppa (Oper),
- w:de:Mazeppa (Sinfonische Dichtung) by Liszt, as well as his related Étude d'exécution transcendante, see the French w:fr:Mazeppa (étude pour piano)), as well as Victor Hugo's poem that inspired him, see w:fr:Les Orientales#Table des matières (no. 34, with illustration on the right-hand side) and w:fr:Mazeppa.
- Taras Bulba is not just a opera by Mykola Lysenko (listed but little known) but also a novel by Gogol and a well-known orchestral work by Leoš Janáček (both missing from the list).
- As we've just had a Beethoven year (not a very lucky one, admittedly), his variations on an Ukrainian folksong (along with dozens of further references to the same song in Western music and literature) might be brought to the readers' attention, see w:de:Schöne Minka.
- When it comes to painting, there are various articles of undoubted relevance. Why not list them?
- I believe Ukrainian icon painting would deserve separate treatment, in addition to the generic w:en:Icon article.
- And of course, there are lots of further artices that may or may not be worth translating into further languages:
To sum it up: It's that kind of links between our cultures (via Victor Hugo to Liszt and the movies, via Gogol to Janáček and the Western philharmonic concert halls, via Beethoven and Weber to piano albums, student song books and quasi-proverbial popularity) that make Ukraine a part of Europe, rather than artists who are barely known outside of the country. In fact, following those traces of Ukrainian heritage in European culture could make a highly interesting series of lectures, e.g. on the programme of the Ukrainian Institute. That kind of topics could really be substantial contributions to Cultural Diplomacy.
Please, do consider adding items of this kind, regardless of whether or not the author/composer/painter was a Ukrainian. In these cases, it's the content that matters. -- Martinus KE (talk) 15:43, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
Culture and languages
Hi! I've been editing a few articles about languages spoken in Ukraine as they tend to lack some vital info. I was, however, wondering if they count to this project. As a linguistics student I would of course count them but what's the opinion of the organisers? Kaljami (talk) 20:06, 28 February 2021 (UTC)
If I only add references and images to an article, do the bytes that I add are counted? For example, In this edit, I added 4008 bytes (but all of them are sources and images). Do I get four points, or shouldn't they count since they are only images and references?. And also, my contributions on Theater in Ukraine, is considered as a contributions to a (Suggested article, or improved article). Finally, if I create and translate an article from the suggested articles, do the sources that I copy and paste from English to Arabic are considered as "new sources"?? --Malkawi99 (talk) 04:29, 3 March 2021 (UTC)

Banner inscription in German should be corrected
The banner inscription in German is wrong:
10 Februar – 10 März, 2021
10. Februar – 10. März 2021
Can someone please correct this?
So, what about the other Wikiprojects like Wikiquote and Wikisources? E.g., while translations have been mentioned here, Wikipedia articles really aren't the place for any relevant amount of translations from the original texts, be it just quotes or full texts (if in public domain or under CC). --Ehitaja (talk) 13:54, 5 March 2021 (UTC)
