Ukraine celebrates the Day of Dignity and Freedom

21 November 2017, 07:57

On November 21 Ukraine celebrates the Day of Dignity and Freedom which commemorates two significant events in Ukraine’s history - the Orange Revolution of 2004 and the Revolution of Dignity of 2013.

These revolutions have shown the boundless power of the Ukrainian people and its aspiration to create a modern democratic state in which freedom of speech and the rule of law prevail.

The Day of Dignity and Freedom is a day of victory over totalitarianism, a day of the European choice of Ukraine, a day of Ukrainian patriotism.

We are proud of the heroes who defended the independence of Ukraine and who continue to defend our country against the backdrop of Russian aggression.

Glory to Ukraine! Glory to heroes!
