Pronunciation is important as not to scare someone when saying "hello"!?

Context: Jesus appearing in the midst of the apostles after his resurrection...

I think something that was forgotten in the notes on religion, is how superstitious Ukrainians are :)

Do you think this is true of Ukrainians in general or only of émigrés? Although most or all cultures have superstitions, I noticed that horoscopes increased in popularity after the fall of the Soviet Union. Perhaps this is because people run to superstitions when they feel that their lives are uncertain?

How about "I'm no ghost!"?

We'd say at home: "Я не дух!" ("I'm not a ghost!")
