Constantine Potomkiv and Jacob Potomkiv are a Father/Son team on Velyki perehony.


Retrieved from

Constantine and Jacob came to Velyki Perehony to find a common language for the first time in 18 years. The father and son hoped that the extreme trip around the world would help them understand each other.

It occurred to my mother to send Jacob and Constantine around the world. She believed that this unforgettable experience brought father and son closer.

Jacob is the youngest participant in the project. He is 18 years old. He is direct and sincere, but at the same time unrestrained. Constantine, on the other hand, is calm and sensible. Because of different views and different characters, father and son often quarreled. Which sometimes prevented them from performing tasks clearly and correctly.

Going to the project, Constantine decided: he will not mess with his son. They will perform all tasks on an equal footing. Jacob hoped that thanks to the show he would be able to prove to his father that he was an adult and independent.

" If someone had said before the start of the project how our relationship would change and how it would turn out for us, we wouldn't believe it," the guys say. "But this adventure changed our lives 100%!"

Were the father and son able to understand and unite for a common goal? And what did their desire to find a common language lead to?

You can learn about it only in the show Velyki Perehony.[1]
