Are Ukraine women naturally prideful?

Are Ukraine women really prideful? Or is my girlfriend and the women in her family a special case? I swear, all women in her immediate family, including her, are so full of pride. They wonít back down and they never really apologize even when they are obviously wrong. They are so prideful, they wonít even borrow money from each other even when theyíre in so much need. I donít know if this is a cultural thing or if this is true only to their family. Need some insight guys. Also, can I still change this type of attitude? I want my gf to be less prideful for the sake of herself. I know it sucks having to change someone but Iím only looking out for her and for the family so please donít take it the wrong way.
