Tomorrow is the Anniversary of our Great Victory

Tomorrow is the anniversary of Our Great Victory. Many good, kind and exalted words will be said. For some people, it is a day of celebration, with feelings of excitement and commemorated with “the commissar’s ration,” the soldiers 100 grams of vodka. However, a lot of criticism will also be levelled at our holiday. It is a day when some people will pour scorn and hatred onto everything honourable associated with the Victory.

Vadym Novynskyi: Concerned Government Blocks our Entry into Odessa

Representatives of ‘Svoboda’ and ‘AutoMaidan’ have prevented Vadym Novynskyi and Yurii Boiko, Deputies (MPs) from the Opposition Bloc, from leaving the terminal at Odessa Airport. The aim of these protestors was to prevent the Opposition delegation from attending a service commemorating the 48 people who died, and 247 people injured, during the 2014 clashes in Odessa. 

The Remembrance Service was due to be held in Odessa at 14:00. Not wanting to escalate the situation, the Parliamentarians flew back to Kyiv.

Post-revolution

I am a Ukrainian patriot. I made my choice consciously and I am not going to change my mind. I followed my convictions, when I became a Ukrainian citizen, no matter how many of my detractors claim the contrary. I live and work here, I pay taxes here, and I abide by the laws here. My future is here. I care about the fate of the country that I now call home.
