The most beautiful women live in Ukraine, it’s already a well-known fact.  And Kiev takes the first place in the list of the ten cities with the most stunning ladies in the world.
US Vice President Joe Biden was struck by the beauty of Ukrainian women after his two-day diplomatic visit to Kiev. We all remember media news headlines:

  • Biden Gushes Over Ukraine’s “Beautiful Women”.
  • Veep Biden met with Ukrainian President in Kiev and gave a new meaning to foreign relations when he lavished praise on the women of the country – telling the leader “you have so many beautiful women” here.
  • Veep blurts Ukraine has “the most beautiful women in the world”.

American and European feminists and journalists started blaming the man in all the existing sins after a two sentence truthful remark about his personal observations. But I believe it wasn’t just one of  his ordinary gaffes as media managed to name it. This honorable senior official, who traveled all over the world due to his political and social mission, has seen a lot. And if he made this short remark on such a high-rank level, I dare to say – He meant it!

In pursuit of a Ukrainian dream-wife

Nowadays you can hardly meet a man who hasn’t been heard of Ukrainian women’s beauty. Nature has created men in such a way that they love with their eyes and appearance of a woman is important for them. So, as soon as foreigners arrive in Ukraine they are struck by the exceptional beauty of the women. They see gorgeous ladies everywhere around and somewhere deep inside their enchanted mind arises a perennial question – “Why are these women so stunning ?!”

Americans, Europeans, Russians used to spend weekends and vacations in Kiev and Odessa, hanging out in luxury night clubs, karaoke restaurants, lounge cafes and simply enjoying their life in the company of stunning Ukrainian ladies, in the atmosphere of Paradise!

So, what is the origin of a phenomenon of Ukrainian women beauty?

Middle Ages Witch hunt terror to blame?

Recently I’ve come across an article that Western Europeans destroyed their gene pool of beautiful women in the Middle Ages. When each beautiful woman was subjected to the death penalty being accused of witchcraft, they were burned at the stake. Moreover, if a newborn girl was beautiful, she was killed as well. While in Eastern Europe on the lands of Slavs this terrifying process didn’t leave much impact.

Frankly speaking, I don’t take this theory seriously. Let’s analyze just some simple data. The “witch hunt” processes started in the middle of the 16th century and lasted for 200 years. During this time the overall quantity of victims of Inquisition counts not more than 50 000 people. Here included not only women but also men, children, newborns.

In comparison with the history of physical destruction and moral harassment of Ukrainian people over the last 650 years this “witch hunt” looks just like drop in the ocean. Only the Holodomor (the Soviet man-made terror-famine in USSR in 1932-1933) claimed lives of 4-7 million ethnic Ukrainians.

Mixture of blood, genes, and assimilation of Old Slavs

There also exists a very popular theory that Ukrainian women are uniquely beautiful thanks to the uncontrolled mixture of genes and blood during numerous invasions and also assimilation of ethnicities. History tells us that in different times ethnic Ukrainians and their lands were invaded by powers of Khazars, Mongols, Poles, Lithuanians, Turks, Russians.

Let’s look at the history of invasions and assimilation of Slavs – inhabitants of the ancient Eastern European feudal state Kievan Rus in more detail.

  • Khazar kingdom – Jewish Empire

Khazaria held considerable sway in the 7-11 centuries, extending its power from the northern Caucasus to Eastern Europe and beyond. It held considerable power and influence over the Slavs. It was only in 1016 when a joint Rus-Byzantine expedition was launched against the Khazars that the Khazar empire was defeated.

An interesting fact is that Khazars were not Turks as we were taught at Soviet schools. Before the enslavement by the Persian Jews, Khazaria was a powerful state where both white and black Khazars lived peacefully. The white Khazars were the ruling elite consisted of the Slavic Aryans professional warriors. Arab sources and Muslim geographers describe “white Khazars” ruling caste as having a white complexion, blue eyes and reddish hair. The black Khazars were the Turkic Tribes who came from the lower reaches of the river Ra, from the depths of Asia. They had yellow or dark skin color and black eyes and hair. Studies of the physical remains of Khazars such as skulls at Sarkel have reflected a mixture of Slavic, European and Mongolian types.

  • the Golden Horde – Mongolian tribes – Tatar-Mongol yoke

There also are historical suppositions that Tatar-Mongol yoke (Asian tribes which constantly made raids on Kievan Rus) in the meaning of purely Mongolian nation never existed. We owe this term to Soviet historiography. Until the 16th century, there isn’t a single mention of a “yoke” in any ancient sources. There is not the slightest memory of the great Mongol empire in Mongolia. There are no records or any structures, ruins or documents about this massive “Mongol” empire.

There is no mention of Asian soldiers in the “Mongol” army. From the very first battle with the “invaders” there were Old Slavic Rus people on all sides. Mongol seemed to refer to any nomads at all. It turns out that the famous Tatar-Mongol invasion was an invasion of Siberian Rus pagans united with Turkic pagans and cumans against Rus Christian Slavic people.

  • Poles, Hungarians, Bulgarians, Serbs, Macedonians, Croats, Czechs, Slovens, part of European Russians, these are all nations which descended from Slavic tribes.

They were separated by the Christian church into Orthodox and Catholics. East Slavic Orthodox were united in the Kievan Rus feudal state. There, surely, exists the fact of assimilation and ethnic consolidation between ethnicities. But globally human history can be seen as a process of assimilation of nations, association countless tribes in a limited number of ethnic groups, peoples, nations, nationalities.

Anthropologists claim that at least 1/5 part of the world’s population is mestizo. Thus, to state that Slavs suffered the most massive assimilation is not reasonable. Moreover, numerous DNA tests of Y chromosomes from a representative sample of Ukrainians revealed that despite the conventional belief about the strong Turkic and Mongolian impurities in the blood of Slavs, it turned out that a haplogroup of Turkic nations and other Asian ethnic groups left a very small trace on Slavic population – only 3 to 5 %. All in all, I wouldn’t stick to the point that only the fact of the mixed blood in the history of a nation led to the reality whether its people are beautiful or not.

Descendants of Aryans and Trypillians

The beauty of Ukrainian women has passed through the centuries and has retained its primordial glory. There was an interesting research which revealed that in the genes of modern Ukrainian women were found “traces” of Trypillians and Aryans. While the main chromosome which determines the origin of Ukrainians belongs to the very ancient and unknown to science ethnic group. One more interesting fact that scientists revealed is that ancestors of Ukrainian women didn’t care about the ideas of tribes and nations, which they considered were invented by men and for men. But what they cared more was proper fatherhood ability of men. They instinctively chose as partners only those representatives of the most powerful tribes who had to be good fathers to their children.

Ukrainian women are Feminine – not Feminists

Speaking about gender roles in Ukraine, they still differ from those in Western Europe. The idea of feminism has not been caught in Ukraine. Here has been cultivated a soft women’s strength.

Have a look at these originally Ukrainian proverbs:

  • A husband is a head, a wife is a neck. Where the neck will turn, that way the head will look.
  • Just as father says, so by “mother’s will” it will be.
  • A good wife is a stone wall.

Matriarchy is the most profound component of Ukrainian culture. That’s why here people say that with a good wife a husband will be a man.

In Ukraine, a woman has always possessed a right to make her own decision. Can you tell what other nation had the following wedding rite?

Wedding ceremonies started with matchmaking. First a groom sent his trustful representatives to the girl’s parents and in playful and allegorical form they asked to give their daughter in marriage. The girl herself didn’t participate in negotiations, but she had a right to choose and to express her opinion. If she agreed to marry that guy, then she playfully pretended being busy cooking in the oven. If not – she gave the representatives a pumpkin. That was a sign of refusal and it was called “to catch a pumpkin”. Such bad result was so humiliating for the groom that very often before the matchmaking he sent scouts to the girl’s house. Those were supposed to find out what was on her mind.

It will be wise to say that all the above mentioned historical, political, social, cultural facts and circumstances created and formed the image of a Ukrainian woman which we have nowadays. The image which has passed through the centuries and hasn’t lost a single drop of that unique beauty, heartwarming femininity and spiritual power.

On the rights of the author of this article I invite you to Kiev, amazing ancient city, capital of Ukraine. Come and make sure that Ukrainian women are really the most beautiful women in the world. During my Kiev private tours I will tell you more about the history and culture of Ukrainians.

The phenomenon of Ukrainian women beauty, either physical or spiritual, is still being discovered. Scientists all over the world rack their brains guessing the truth. While Ukrainian women continue bearing the fame of the best wives ever. Every day of her life a Ukrainian wife proves to be a trustful supporter to her husband, a wise counselor, a combat friend and an equal life partner.

    The reason Ukrainian women are so beautiful is the reason that the central Swedes are beautiful, the Rus were vikings and the race has been maintained in high numbers and pure from outside interference. You get this effect in Slovakia as well. The Slovaks, mountain people are a very beautiful race but in their case a tall and broad shouldered stonger race. You see women who are close to two metres tall. The mountains and numbers allowed them to survive pure from Roman rapes. The north eastern Germans and the Dutch and Scandinavians and the Russians of St Petersburg and Moscow also have amazing looking women. Also they avoided rape by latins (Spanish, Italians, French). If you look at what transpired in Britain. With William the Conqueror our fairest maidens, Angle Women and Danish women, were subjected to rapes by French mercenary soldiers with big noses. They were selected for and raped systematically for three hundred ahd fifty years since about 1066 to about 1359. The French mercenary soldiers that came with William’s ancestral norsemen must have had blue eyes because our blue eyes have not suffered with these rapes. If you go to Normandy you will see a lot of people with big French noses but with Frankish, German, blonde hair and blue eyes.

      Thank you so much for reading the article!
      I absolutely agree with you that the northeastern Germans, the Dutch, Scandinavians and the Russians have an attractive appearance. Especially German men ))

    • Nadiya Voronova says:

      It’s true. I’m Ukrainian, my ex-husband is Russian. We made a DNA test for our daughter. In her blood flows a “cocktail” mainly Slavic and Swedish blood, plus German, Italian, French, British, Norwegian! And not a drop of Asian, which is amazing. And relatives were found in the United States. So, I think, everywhere there are beautiful women.)))

      I don’t agree this when you say ‘The only refugees that would be welcome in America!’

      I’m proud of being a American only if this country is open and tolerant

      But you think Ukraine girls are refugees, this is obviously wrong. You are dating and a girl and you think she is a refugee………. Come on!
