He's got a Masters in Ukrainian!

Chinese student defends Masters degree in Ukrainian
A student from China has graduated with a Masters diploma from Kharkiv State University. He is the first foreign student at Kharkiv U to defend his diploma in the Ukrainian language.
Lee Don Hai from Beijing defended his diploma in Ukrainian, while the rest of his classmates did so in Russian. Lee Don Hai said that he studied Russian in the past, but a roommate convinced him to learn Ukrainian. He said that he quickly grew fond of the melodic language. Lee Don Hai said that people in Kharkiv are very surprised when the Beijing native speaks to them in Ukrainian. He intends on returning to China after he accepts his red diploma – the highest recognition of excellence – next month.
