2018 was a historic year for Ukraine. The year of achievements and changes. But still not a year in which the war ended. Transcarpathia, as a region with a special character, perceives all the events in the country and the world in its own unique way. Therefore, it has its own highlights of 2018. Here is the first half of our traditional photo review of 2018 with the photos of our author Serhiy Hudak.
