Five cubs were born in captivity at a private zoo near Kyiv 

Five rare white lion cubs, born at a private zoo near Kyiv more than a month ago, are being shown to the media.

Specialists say the birth of five cubs is uncommon because usually no more than four ones are born.

All the new arrivals are healthy, and zoo keepers promise to show them to a broad public already this month. Little ones have no names yet, but the zoo has launched an online contest to name the cubs.

The same zoo has already welcomed the new lions just before the New Year when lion Ludwig and lioness Ivana became parents of three cubs.
