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.

      Patriarch Filaret should not bully the UAOC into losing it's canonical association with Constantinople. The best thing would be for the KP to join the UAOC and wait until the Holy Spirit steps in.

      I don't know if you want the UN involved in your historical sites. For one thing, they do nothing to protect them. They will probably force gays in there or demand women priests. The UN hates a
