Normally they meet in Ukraine to celebrate Christmas, but not this year. The war with Russia greatly changed the plans of the couple, who married in January.
Arrived on August 24 with her son Vladyslav, Viktoriia will celebrate Christmas for the first time in Quebec. On the menu: turkey and tourtière!
And the family will be able to celebrate twice, since they will also mark Orthodox Christmas, which takes place on January 7. And it will be Viktoriia's turn to recall the flavors of her country, in particular by cooking a traditional borscht.
The festivities will be low-key and intimate, and thoughts will be directed to Viktoriia's family, still in Ukraine.
