Ukrop (also, Ukr) literally means “dill” in Russian, but for those opposed to Ukrainian government, army, or even nation, it became (initially a derogatory) word for Ukrainians. In the war-torn Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts it indicates Ukrainian soldiers and volunteer fighters. This neologism was invented by separatists back in summer and just like with cyborg it soon became popular with the Ukrainians. Later it inspired the artists and designers to produce stripes and T-shirts with a picture of dill and word ukrop that became commonly worn by Ukrainian volunteer fighters and patriotic civilians.
