"I do not have a sister."
Translation:У мене немає сестри.
I grew up speaking Ukrainian as a second-generation immigrant - growing up we used to say "Я не маю _" instead of "У мене немає ___". I am curious as to whether or not this is correct. Keep in mind my family immigrated from a rural area in Western Ukraine in the 1940s so this may be outdated, but is it incorrect? Is that passive way of declaring possession the only correct way?
