Ukrainian Unity Day (Den Sobornosti) is an important historical event in Ukraine. It goes back to the date when Eastern and Western Ukraine were united. On this day in 1919 the “Treaty of Unity” between Ukrainians was signed and the unity of all Ukrainian lands previously belonging to the Russian Empire (UNR) and the Austro-Hungarian Empire was solemnly proclaimed on Sofijivska Square in Kyiv. “Den Sobornosti” is the symbol of territorial and spiritual unity of Ukraine as a unified sovereign state.

To mark the 71st anniversary of the signing of the Act Zluky in 1990, over 300,000 Ukrainians created a human chain (approx. 482 km (300 mi)) from the capital Kiev to the western Ukrainian city of Lviv on January 21, 1990.

      You might read the Bible more carefully. Self- defense is justified while aggression is not. Perhaps you should ask, what possible justification can there be for Putin's aggression and land grab in

      In criticising West Ukraine for being paranoid of Russia, you yourself exhibit quite a deal of your own paranoia with respect to West-Ukraine.

      Propaganda and counter-propaganda. I can say with near certainty that if Kirill and Filaret were suddenly thrust before the Almighty, He would say, "I don't know either of you. You are equally
