Happy Independence Day!


On August 24, Ukrainians celebrate their most important holiday — Independence Day of Ukraine. On this day, large cities and the smallest villages are holding ceremonial events to mark the 26th anniversary of the Act of Declaration of Independence of Ukraine, a document that declared the establishment of the Ukrainian state in its present form.

The first celebration of Independence Day took place in 1991, but ceremonial events were held on July 16 — on the day when the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine adopted the Declaration of State Sovereignty of Ukraine in 1990. The holiday date was changed in 1992, when the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, taking into consideration the historic importance of adopting the Act of Declaration of Independence of Ukraine on August 24, 1991, approved the resolution On Independence Day of Ukraine.

Ukraine has gone a long way to become an independent state. For centuries, its territory was part of other countries. Today, each of us is responsible for the future of our country. We must appreciate the acquired independence and make an everyday personal contribution to the development of the Ukrainian state.

On the occasion of the holiday, Kharkiv is traditionally holding a number of festive and memorable events, including laying flowers to the monument of Independence, a concert program on the water along the Netechenskaya embankment, various entertainment and sports holidays, and much more.

Happy Independence Day! May happiness, peace and harmony attend every family and may the sky be peaceful above our homeland!
