Independence Day of Ukraine

Every Ukrainian knows that Independence Day is celebrated on August 24. But initially this day was considered a little different date – July 16. However, it lasted only a little over a month.

The fact that the initially declaration of State Sovereignty was proclaimed by Verkhovna Rada of the USSR. And it was July 16, 1990.  Exactly one year later this date was recognized as the day when the country became independent. But in a month, August 24, 1991 Ukraine officially was proclaimed as an independent country. Thus, from 1992 till now, the end of August for every Ukrainian is marked by this important day for the country.

Every year in Kyiv, Lviv, Odesa and in all large and small cities of Ukraine, the parade and festive concerts are held on 24 August, the national anthem is heard, yellow-blue ribbons are seen everywhere. Of course, the day when independence is proclaimed, is important for each country, but Ukrainians have struggled for it during a long time, that to celebrate with a smaller scale would be strange.
