Haha thanks. I submitted it too. This course allows very little for dialectic (Western) words.

They aren't even especially dialectal, otherwise we wouldn't be calling it Помаранчева революція. After all, Yushchenko was from Sumy, not from Lviv.

"Оранжевий" is a russism. In Ukrainian, it's "помаранчевий," as in Помаранчева революція!
