Sorry, but I don't know Ukranian.

Original ancient Greek (in English letters): APOSKOTISON MOU.
English: "Move--you're blocking the sunlight." (Diogenes the Cynic said this to Alexander the Great.)
German: "Weg! Du blockierst die Sonne!" (So Diogenes Cynicus zu Alexander dem Grossen.)
French: "O^tes-toi de mon soleil." (Ce que Diogenes Cynicus a dit a` Alexandre le Grand.)
