"Food is in the fridge."
Translation:Їжа у холодильнику.
In Ukrainian, after a vowel use "в" not "у". After a consonant you should use "у." DL is inconsistent in this use.
It says this rule is not strictly followed by native speakers, so I am also confused about it.
Thanks for the link. So in this case it would be "в" because of the rule "after a vowel before a word beginning one consonant"?
