Independence Day 2022: how they will celebrate in wartime and what the Ministry of Culture has banned

The Cabinet of Ministers has approved an action plan to celebrate the Independence Day of Ukraine and the State Flag Day, which are celebrated on August 23 and 24. Solemn events are scheduled for these days, сообщает Ministry of Culture and Information Policy.

On August 23, in Kyiv and other cities, as well as in foreign diplomatic institutions, military units, official solemn ceremonies of raising the State Flag of Ukraine will be held.

On August 24, the Motherland monument and other iconic places will be illuminated with the colors of the State Flag. A prayer service for Ukraine will be held in the Sophia Kyivska National Reserve with the participation of representatives of all churches.

An exhibition of destroyed Russian equipment will be held on Khreshchatyk.

During official events, a minute of silence will honor all those who died in the war against the Russian occupiers.

“This year the Independence Day of Ukraine has a special meaning for all Ukrainians. We have a war going on and the occupiers are furious with their helplessness. Ukrainians, on the other hand, continue to adequately resist non-humans and amaze the world with their invincibility, strength and empathy for those who are nearby. We are now living through a historic moment, our nation is being tempered in the struggle. We will always remember who is our friend and who is our enemy. I sincerely believe that very soon we will loudly celebrate our victory,” said Minister of Culture Oleksandr Tkachenko.

As for mass events, it is not known whether they will take place, since they were banned in Kyiv due to the threat of missile strikes. The corresponding order was signed by the head of the Kyiv city military administration Nikolai Zhirnov.

However, the exhibition on Khreshchatyk of the damaged equipment of the Russian army will take place anyway. 

Earlier we reported that the Ministry of Internal Affairs warned about "gifts" from the Russian Federation on the Independence Day of Ukraine.
