(SOUNDBITE) (Ukrainian) KOTELVA RESIDENT, OKSANA DOROSHENKO, SAYING: "It is our historical and cultural legacy. And I don't want this folk art to vanish and fade away in the crazy rhythm of modern life. I don't want it to die with our grannies. I want young people to practice this tradition and pass it on from generation to generation. I want young women to bake these traditional cookies for New Year and Christmas, bake these cookies in the shape of horses and teach their children how to bake."
