Here's Front Line Kitchen's borscht recipe:

Ingredients:

pork (beef, chicken) preferably on the bone - 400 g,

cabbage - 400 g,

potatoes - 300 g,

beetroot - 200 g, carrots - 1-2 pcs.,

parsley root, parsnip, celery - 1 pc.,

bell pepper - 1 pc.,

onion - 1 pc.,

tomato puree - 2-3 tbsp. spoons,

oil for frying, garlic, dill and parsley greens, pepper, bay leaf, salt.


Preparation:

Red borscht is usually in broth, so it is boiled first. Next, cut the beets into strips, add salt, pour into a pan, fry in oil, adding tomato puree, bring to half-cooked. Onions, carrots, parsley root, parsnip and celery, and bell pepper should also be fried.

Throw the potatoes into the broth, bring it to half-cooked again, then put the cabbage and cook for another 10 minutes, and then season it with roasting and let it boil for another 5 minutes.

Garnish with garlic, green dill and parsley. Leave for 15-20 minutes before serving.

The life & times of Taras Shevchenko (part 2)
00:24:42

Over the Christmas week we’re doing things a little differently. Today is the second part of a special two part podcast on the life and works of Ukrainian poet, writer and artist, Taras Shevchenko.

In the last episode, we heard about the historical period in which the young Shevchenko grew up. We heard about the boy who was born a serf but went to St Petersburg for his education.

Lyubov spoke about his poetry and ended the episode with his arrest by the Tsarist powers. That’s where we pick up his story.

The life & times of Taras Shevchenko (part 1)
00:42:31

Over the Christmas week we’re doing things a little differently. Today is the first part of a special two part podcast on the life and works of Ukrainian poet, writer and artist, Taras Shevchenko.

Shevchenko’s life is a fascinating story. Born in serfdom in 1814, he died in 1861 in St Petersburg. His life is one of incredible creativity, artistic talent and gives us a fascinating glimpse back into 19th century Ukrainian history at a time when the Russian Empire was in its heyday. Understanding him, his life and his impact on Ukrainian culture, should help us better contemporary modern Ukraine and that is what this two part podcast will try and do.

Today, Ukrainian soldiers are warmly welcomed to Kherson city amid jubilant scenes marking the end of more than eight months of Russian occupation.

"I survived Bucha": an interview with Katya Savchenko
00:36:52

Today, we break from the normal programme to interview Bucha survivor, Katya Savchenko.

Before the 24th February, the town of Bucha was known as, an attractive suburb, north west of Kyiv. 

During the early part of the invasion, it was the scene of heavy fighting as Ukrainian and Russian forces battled for control. For weeks, the town was under Russian occupation and, soon after they were pushed back, horrendous stories of murder, rape and torture emerged from civilians who had stayed in the town. 

Katya Savchenko stayed in Bucha. She survived, many of the people she met, didn’t.
