Pryvit, podruho


Explanation:
The answerer has made a mistake in the word "podruha" (female friend) and the greeting "Dobroho ranku." Both these words requires an "h," not "g." The answerer is not aware that Ukrainian has two phonemes - one that corresponds to the English "h", and another that corresponds to the English hard "g." This confusion is common to Russified Ukrainian speakers from Ukraine.
So the answer given is very wrong!
