Such questions can ask those Ukrainians that nothing can change your consciousness in the Ukrainian way, because at the end of masculine nouns in the dative case singular -ow, -EW eve – native Ukrainian and has appeared together with the birth of the Ukrainian language.

Such termination is in the Polish and Czech languages, but they are not in the Russian language. Therefore, Russians and Russified Ukrainians, they seem to be “strange”. And for native speakers authentic Ukrainian language, it is natural to say: help dad write a letter to his brother, say thank you comrade, happy rain , and the like. Sometimes these endings are used even in nouns neuter: “I Hope from the sea, very much, thank him and South the sun” (Lesya Ukrainka).
